We report Au/Ru core-shell nanowire motors. These nanowires are fabricated using our previously developed electrodeposition-based technique, and their catalytic locomotion in the presence of H2O2 is investigated. Unlike conventional bimetallic nanowires that are self-electroosmotically propelled, our open-ended Au/Ru core-shell nanowires show both a(More)
We investigated the efficacy of sequential treatments of aqueous chlorine and chlorine dioxide and drying in killing Escherichia coli O157:H7 in biofilms formed on stainless steel, glass, plastic, and wooden surfaces. Cells attached to and formed a biofilm on wooden surfaces at significantly (P ≤ 0.05) higher levels compared with other surface types. The(More)
For teleoperation of multiple mobile robots (e.g., unmanned aerial vehicles), a better situational awareness of remote environments is crucial for good performance. Visual and force feedback are the most common ways to perceive the environments accurately using a vision system and a haptic device, respectively. In outdoor environments, however, it is(More)
Conventional photocatalytic micromotors are limited to the use of specific wavelengths of light due to their narrow light absorption spectrum, which limits their effectiveness for applications in biomedicine and environmental remediation. We present a multiwavelength light-responsive Janus micromotor consisting of a black TiO2 microsphere asymmetrically(More)
This paper presents a method to localize a magnetically guided catheter using a single rotating C-Arm. Because the three dimensional position of the catheter tip, when extracted from a single view, contains large uncertainties, we propose to combine multiple views by rotating the C-Arm and using a Kalman filter. The proposed approach yields good tracking(More)
Digital holography is used to track the three-dimensional position of a magnetic microrobot maneuvered in real time by means of an electromagnetic manipulation system. The method presented is able to process holograms at 40&#x00A0;Hz with a position accuracy in the imaging plane and in depth of <inline-formula><tex-math notation="LaTeX">$\pm$(More)
There is, practically, imperfect communication network (e.g., time delay and packet loss/switching) in haptic interaction (or teleoperation) systems. It is well known that such imperfect communication degrades teleoperator's performance as well as stability. We hypothesis that as an imperfectness level in the communication network is increasing, the(More)
A magnetic-tip steerable needle is presented with application to aiding deep brain stimulation electrode placement. The magnetic needle is 1.3mm in diameter at the tip with a 0.7mm diameter shaft, which is selected to match the size of a deep brain stimulation electrode. The tip orientation is controlled by applying torques to the embedded(More)
Telesurgery has come to the forefront because of many merits such as a small incision, less bleeding and a short period of hospitalization. By means of internet, telesurgery is practical even the master and the slave are not physically in the same place. Internet, however, causes communication constraints such as time-varying delay and packet loss which(More)
Better situational awareness helps understand remote environments and achieve better performance in the teleoperation of multiple mobile robots (e.g., a group of unmanned aerial vehicles). Visual and force feedbacks are the most common ways of perceiving the environments accurately and effectively; however, accurate and adequate sensors for global(More)
