In this study, we describe the ratchet transport of particles under static asymmetric potential with periodicity. Ratchet transport has garnered considerable attention due to its potential for developing smart transport techniques on a micrometer scale. In previous studies, either particle self-propulsion or time varying potential was introduced to realize unidirectional transport. Without utilizing these two factors, we experimentally demonstrate ratchet transport through particle interactions… CONTINUE READING
