Electric and magnetic manipulation of colloids for materials and devices

Dr. Ahmet Demirörs

External fields are a useful tool to manipulate materials without having contact. I will show two examples of how we used external fields, 1) for achieving bio-inspired composites with control on the orientation and position of the colloidal reinforcing components in the composite, 2) for programmable micro-scale cargo delivery purposes where we used magnetic fields for transport and electric fields for pick up and release of cargo.
