Optically-driven micromachines and microtools (2005–2009)

Abstract:
The aim of the proposed project is to design fabricate and test a range of optically driven and manipulated micromachines microprobes and microtools including micromotors smaller than 10 microns across. One device an optical microrheometer already exists in a prototype version and we will study its application in medical diagnostics. Our work will significantly further the development of micro- and nano-technology and be of use for clinical industrial and research fields
