Artificial bacterial flagella (ABF) are swimming microrobots that mimic the swimming motion of bacteria. The helical swimmer consists of an InGaAs/GaAs/Cr helical nanobelt tail fabricated by a self-scrolling technique with dimensions similar to a natural flagellum, and a thin soft-magnetic metal “head” consisting of a Cr/Ni/Au multi-layer. The swimming locomotion of ABF is precisely controlled in 3-D by external rotating magnetic fields. Microsphere manipulation is performed by ABF, and… CONTINUE READING
