This work addresses the characterization and control of Magnetotactic Bacterium (MTB) which can be considered as a biological microrobot. Magnetic dipole moment of the MTB and response to a field-with-alternating-direction are characterized. First, the magnetic dipole moment is characterized using four techniques , i.e., Transmission Electron Microscopy(More)
— This paper describes our work to magnetically steer self-propelled devices which move by catalysis of hydrogen peroxide. We demonstrate manipulation of paramagnetic particles with a diameter of 100 µm to a given setpoint by means of magnetic field gradients, as well as self-propelled movement of gold-platinum rods. We discuss how to reach magnetic torque(More)
