Magnetically actuated bio-inspired metamaterials

Deliverables

Theoretical study of MM's magnetic control

The report will describe how the micro-motors are affected by the external magnetic fields. It will also include details on the control by the AC and DC magnetic fields for translational displacement of the motors.

Theoretical study of interactions MMs

The report will provide details on the interactions of two and several micromotors, in particular the motion of several micro-motors in a ‘pack’ and their interaction with the stationary surfaces.

Theory of artificial muscle analogue

Report on the model and the details of its application to explore magneto-elastic anisotropic properties of MEMs subjected to AC and DC magnetic fields.

Experimental study of regimes and magnetic control

Observations of several regimes of motion and ‘guided’ control of with the external magnetic field.

Experimental study of MM's interactions

The report will provide details of the experimental observations of motion of two and several micromotors in close proximity to each other. It will also include observations of motion in proximity of stationary surfaces.

Artifical muscle analogue

Report on the details of the experimental investigation of the magneto-elastic anisotropic properties of MEMS subjected to AC and DC magnetic fields.

Experimental study of microfluidic properties

The documentation will provide experimental observations of micromotor’s motion on liquid interface as well as the characteristics of velocity of motion as function of the AC magnetic field frequency and parameters of the micromotors.
