A surgical micro-robot that swims inside the human ureter is proposed to provide a novel and minimally invasive method of kidney stone destruction. Inspired by the swimming mechanisms of bacteria such as E. coli, the robot utilizes biomimetic synthetic flagella composed of multiwalled carbon nanotubes that are driven into a rotating helical shape by a micro(More)
Basic IC fabrication techniques are employed in this paper with the purpose of designing a micro-fluidic device with a 3D electrode arrangement to separate live and dead biological cells. This is done using the concept of dielectrophoresis, which describes the transnational motion of particles due to the application of a non-uniform electrical field. The(More)
