Typically, the force between paramagnetic particles in a uniform magnetic field is calculated using either dipole-based models or the Maxwell stress tensor combined with Laplace's equation forâ€¦ (More)

The solid-liquid melting transition in a two-dimensional (2-D) attractive colloidal system is visualized using superparamagnetic colloids that interact through a long-range isotropic attractiveâ€¦ (More)

Swimming at low Reynolds number is typically dominated by a large viscous drag, therefore microscale swimmers require non-reciprocal body deformation to generate locomotion. Purcell described aâ€¦ (More)

Typically the force between paramagnetic particles in a uniform magnetic field is described using the dipolar model, which is inaccurate when particles are in close proximity to each other. Instead,â€¦ (More)
