Wannier functions derived from Bloch functions have been identified as an efficient means of analyzing the properties of photonic crystals in which localized functions have now opened the door for 2D and 3D structures containing defects to be investigated. In this paper, based on the Maxwell equations in diagonalized form and utilizing Bloch waves we have(More)
Captive bubbles that reside on superhydrophobic surfaces with plastrons move uncontrollably when tilted. A system based on creating moveable local apexes on flexible superhydrophobic foils is shown to allow controlled transport. Simulations done reveal that specific bubble transport speeds are needed to form concentration gradients suited for aerotaxis(More)
There are significant challenges in assessing the toxicity of nanoparticles in the environment in which effective methods for detection are crucial. An inexpensive method that uses superhydrophobic well with an evaporating droplet followed by a simple squeeze flow is described here and found to provide practical high nanoparticle collection from samples for(More)
Flow-based measures to automate optical trapping have significant limitations. A scheme is advanced here where a spherical bead is first located in a trap, and a second bead below the focus point is selectively drawn into the trap to replace the original particle. Experimentation conducted showed that it was possible to do so with little perturbation of(More)
We advance a scheme in which a liquid body on a stationary tip in contact with a rotating superhydrophobic surface is able to maintain resonance primarily from stick-slip events. With tip-to-surface spacing in the range 2.73 ≤ h < 2.45 mm for a volume of 10 μL, the liquid body was found to exhibit resonance independent of the speed of the drum. The(More)
We present here a method for sorting nanometer scale brownian rods by using a switching asymmetric periodic potential. A two stage sorting process is used to isolate particles with specific dimensions, with acceptable sorting times as well as realizable potential barrier lengths. The method was tested using computer simulations. The ability to sort the(More)
During the collection phase of the dried blood spot method, practitioners need to ensure that there is no smearing of the blood sample on the filter paper or else readings from it will be invalid. This can be difficult to accomplish in the field if there is relative motion between the site of blood discharge on the finger and the filter paper. In this(More)
Captive bubbles on a superhydrophobic (SH) surface have been shown to increase in volume via injection of air through the surrounding plastron. The experimental contact diameter against volume trends were found to follow that predicted by the Surface Evolver simulation generally but corresponded with the simulated data at contact angle (CA) = 158° when the(More)
Flexible automation systems provide the needed adaptability to serve shorter-term projects and specialty applications in biochemical analysis. A low-cost selective compliant articulated robotic arm designed for liquid spillage avoidance is developed here. In the vertical-plane robotic arm movement test, the signals from an inertial measurement unit (IMU)(More)
