*  Microfluidics and micromanipulation: multi-scale applicationsof surface tension (BELSPO PAI Micro-MAST) [Microfluidics and...
The scientific objectives of this IAP network are driven by fundamental questions raised in microfluidics, interfacial science, and micromanipulation. The rational use of surface tension, surface stress and capillary effects in micromanipulation will be applied to a selected number of highly relevant case studies by the network partners, including capillary gripping, capillary filling, capillary alignment, capillary sealing, capillary self-assembly and droplet manipulation (incl. generation and transport). These fundamental questions can be grouped into three categories:1. Fluid statics and dynamics: How much force is applied on solids by menisci and micro-flows in a given geometry? What happens if the solid bends when subject to these forces? Are the interfaces stable and what if not? What is the effect of an electric field? How can the microscopic description of wetting be translated into an adequate boundary condition at the macroscopic level (e.g. contact angle and ...

*  Vision Based Automatic Calibration of Microrobotic System
During the last decade, the advancement of microrobotics has provided a powerful tool for micromanipulation in various fields including living cell manipulation, MEMS/MOEMS assembly, and micro-/nanoscale material characterization. Several dexterous micromanipulation systems have been developed and demonstrated. Nowadays, the research on micromanipulation has shifted the scope from the conceptual system development to the industrial applications. Consequently, the future development of this field lies on the industrial applicability of systems that aims to convert the micromanipulation technique to the mass manufacturing process. In order to achieve this goal, the automatic microrobotic system, as the core in the process chain, plays a significant role. This thesis focuses on the calibration procedure of the positioning control, which is one of the fundamental issues during the automatic microrobotic system development. A novel vision based ...

*  HKU Scholars Hub: A novel PVDF microforce/force rate sensor for practical applications in micromanipulation
This paper presents our development of a novel force and force rate sensory system to advance applications in micromanipulation using an in situ polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) piezoelectric sensor. To allow close monitoring of magnitude and direction of microforces acting on microdevices during manipulation, PVDF ploymer films are used to fabricate highly sensitive 1D and 2D sensors to detect real-time microforce and force rate information during the manipulation process. The sensory system with a resolution in the range of sub-micronewtons can be applied effectively to develop a technology on the force-reflection microassembly of surface MEMS structures, in addition, a tele-micromanipulation platform, which can be used to perform tele-microassembly of the MEMS structures and tele-cell-manipulation with force/haptic feedback via Internet was also built successfully ...

*  Digital Commons @Brockport - SUNY Undergraduate Research Conference: Optical Micromanipulation of Birefringent Objects with...
In experiments of optical micromanipulation of birefringent objects a circularly or elliptically polarized beam passes through a micron sized birefringent object. Because of the difference between two indices of refraction in the object, there is a transfer of angular momentum from the beam to the object creating optical torque and causing the object to rotate. This phenomenon has applications in micro machines and microfluids research. The focus of this project is to control the rotation of an array of birefringent objects using a beam with a polarization singularity, where the state of polarization varies across the transverse profile of the beam. Using a spatial light modulator the beam can be programmed to have different polarization profiles. When this light is focused on the grid of birefringent crystals it is predicted that each will move in a different way, and the movements can be controlled with the polarization of the beam. Currently data is being taken using calcite ...

Microelectromechanical systems (MEMS) are tiny machines built with techniques derived from the microelectronics industry. Very large numbers of MEMS can be conveniently fabricated in parallel. However, the control and assembly of such massively parallel microsystems gives rise to numerous challenges in modeling, algorithms, as well as in physical implementation.. In this presentation, we explore parallel micromanipulation and microassembly by investigating a cilia-like micro conveyor, a precision docking system for future "pico-satellites", a walking microchip, and self-assembling micro devices.. ...

Recording and stimulation. The experimental arrangement was mounted on a gas-driven vibration isolation table (Technical Manufacturing, Peabody, MA) inside a Faraday cage. Using a stereomicroscope, VS-3 receptor cells were identified through a thin layer of saline. A horizontal puller (P-2000; Sutter Instruments, Novato, CA) was used to pull microelectrodes from borosilicate glass (1 mm outer diameter, 0.5 mm inner diameter). Electrodes (3 m KCl, 45-70 MΩ) were positioned with a micromanipulator (Leitz, Wetzlar, Germany) above a neuronal soma. Cell penetration was achieved by gentle tapping of the micromanipulator. All electrical recordings were done with the switching single-electrode technique in either current- or voltage-clamp mode [duty cycle, 1:8 stimulating/recording; switching frequency, 20 kHz; SEC-05LX amplifier (NPI Electronic, Tamm, Germany)]. Details of the recording technique have been given by Torkkeli and French (1994).. For mechanical stimulation a piezoelectric stimulator ...

Preparation and mounting of the microinjection pipet See "Making micropipetes" and "Injection" in the starfish methods. Make the micropipets from 1 mm O.D., 0.8 mm I.D. glass capillaries using a horizontal puller to produce a long taper.

*  An electromagnetic micromanipulation system for single-cell manipulation » Brill Online
Biological objects were micromanipulated with a magnetic microactuator. These objects are pushed with a small ferromagnetic particle whose size can be as small as 10 × 10 × 5 μm3. This particle is called the manipulator and is moved thanks to a permanent magnet. This magnetic device allows the manipulation of objects in an extremely confined space. As biological objects are fragile, the force applied on them must be controlled during the manipulation. The model we present allows to determine the force applied by the device on the manipulated object. Several experimental measurements are presented in order to validate the model.

the penguin is a compact optical beam deflection sensor used to monitor the deflection of a cantilever whose long axis is parallel to the optical axis of a conventional optical microscope. this allows for a sample, such as a myofibril filament, to be imaged by the optical microscope while forces exerted by it on the cantilever can be measured with very high temporal resolution (well beyond video rate) and very high precision (not limited by the image pixel size).. the optics and electronics necessary for cantilever detection are encased in the penguin, shown below. The digital control and data acquisition is performed by custom designed labview software by tiberius brastaviceanu.. a temperature regulated bath (shown below) mounted on the microscope stage provides the working environment for the sample to be studied. micromanipulators on either side of the penguin manipulate the cantilever and a glass needle to tether the sample at both ends at the beginning of the experiment.. ...
