Fundamentals and applications of inertial microfluidics: a review.
In the last decade, inertial microfluidics has attracted significant attention and a wide variety of channel designs that focus, concentrate and separate particles and fluids have been demonstrated.… Expand
Conducting polymer microactuators operating in air
We report for the first time on microsized conducting polymer actuators, which operate in air and in liquids. These actuators are potentially useful for a wide range of applications from… Expand
Experimental investigation of the vibration characteristics of a magnetorheological elastomer sandwich beam under non-homogeneous small magnetic fields
In this study, a magnetorheological elastomer (MRE) was manufactured and tested, and a MRE sandwich beam was also fabricated from a MRE between two thin aluminum layers. An experimental test rig was… Expand
A review of drug delivery systems for capsule endoscopy.
The development of a highly controllable drug delivery system (DDS) for capsule endoscopy has become an important field of research due to its promising applications in therapeutic treatment of… Expand

We propose to use bending type tri-layer polymer actuators as propulsion fins for a biomimetic device consisting of a rigid body, like a box fish having a carapace, and paired fins running through… Expand
A review of microfabrication techniques and dielectrophoretic microdevices for particle manipulation and separation
The development of lab-on-a-chip (LOC) devices over the past decade has attracted growing interest. LOC devices aim to achieve the miniaturization, integration, automation and parallelization of… Expand
A Review of Non-Invasive Sensory Feedback Methods for Transradial Prosthetic Hands
Sensory feedback to the hand users can be provided via invasive and non-invasive methods. Expand
Performance Quantification of Conducting Polymer Actuators for Real Applications: A Microgripping System
In this paper, we report on modeling, characterization, and performance quantification of a conducting polymer actuator, driving a rigid link to form each finger of a two-finger gripping system,… Expand
