— Laser induced convection flows is a new and promising method to achieve better manipulation of mesoscale objects (above 1 µm and below 500 µm) in a liquid medium. The temperature gradient created by laser absorption generates natural and thermocapillary (or Marangoni) convection flows. These flows are used to perform the manipulation itself. In this(More)

—We present the conductometric behavior of a single atomic carbon nanostructure (graphene) that could be promising to infrared optoelectronic applications. A graphene nanomanipulation system with focused infrared laser source for optoelectronic property characterizations is implemented. The feasibility of mechanical and electrical probing manipulations on(More)
This work describes an automated opto-fluidic system for parallel non-contact manipulation of microcomponents. The strong dynamics of laser-driven thermocapillary flows were used to drag microcomponents at high speeds. High-speed flows allowed to manipulate micro-objects in a parallel manner only using a single laser and a mirror scanner. An automated(More)
