A new, simple, and inexpensive method that uses ultraviolet light to control particle motion and assembly within liquids could improve drug delivery, chemical sensors, and fluid pumps. The method encourages particles to gather and organize at a specific location within a liquid and, if desired, to move to new locations.“Many applications related to sensors, drug delivery, and nanotechnology require the precise control of the flow of fluids,” said Ayusman Sen, Distinguished Professor of Chemistry at Penn State and senior author of the paper. “Researchers have developed a number of strategies to do so, including nanomotors and fluid pumps, but prior to this study we did not have an easy way to gather particles at a particular location so that they can perform a useful function and then move them to a new location so they can perform the function again.
21 September 2017At POWTECH, users from the glass and ceramic industry will find solutions for their entire process chain, from grinding, measuring out and agglomerating to in-service process and quality control. They will gain access to the equipment they need to respond to new demands and to develop innovative products. In addition, there will also be an extensive supporting programme. (more…)
