On-chip micromanipulation and assembly of colloidal particles by electric fields

  title={On-chip micromanipulation and assembly of colloidal particles by electric fields},
  author={Orlin D. Velev and Ketan H. Bhatt},
We overview the ways in which electric fields can be used for on-chip manipulation and assembly of colloidal particles. Particles suspended in water readily respond to alternating (AC) or direct current (DC) electric fields. Charged particles in DC fields are moved towards oppositely charged electrodes by electrophoresis. Dielectrophoresis, particle mobility in AC fields, allows precise manipulation of particles through a range of parameters including field strength and frequency and electrode… CONTINUE READING
