Control and navigation of microswimmers

2018-2019 Summer
Faculty Department of Project Supervisor: 
Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences
Number of Students: 

Swimming microrobots have a huge potential in medical and biological applications. However, many challenges and difficulties must be overcome for the realization of the technology. We use external magnetic fields to rotate micro/mili magnetic particles and enable their motion. Moreover, the external magnetic field can be manipulated to steer the rotating particles and obtain a controllable trajectory. In this project, students are expected to conduct experiments on magnetic particles by manipulating the external field and demonstrate navigation and steering.
