The emphasis is on simulating direct-current electrokinetic phenomena such as electroosmosis, electrophoresis, dielectrophoresis, and induced-charge electrokinetics; these phenomena have been widely used to manipulate fluids and particles in microfluidic and nanofluidic devices for various applications.
The capture rate was further increased on the Hsp60-coated biochip by 60% when a dielectrophoresis force was applied for 5 minutes.
Manipulations of single nanoscopic objects (1-30 nanometers) by surface tunneling microscopy, spontaneous self-assembly and dielectrophoresis are the only available approaches for building functional devices using nanosized metals," write Nicolais and Carotenuto of The Institute of Composite and Biomedical Materials at the National Research Council in Naples, Italy.
Abstract: The authors demonstrate 3-D directed assembly of single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWNT) into porous alumina nanotemplates on silicon substrates by means of electrophoresis and dielectrophoresis at ambient temperatures.
