A collaborative research group including Dr. Arif Engin ÇETİN from IBG published its latest article in the journal of Advanced Intelligent Systems.
Dr. Arif Engin ÇETİN, group leader of the Nanophotonics and Biodetection Systems Lab at IBG, collaborated with the researchers from Gazi University, Ankara University and Abdullah Gul University towards paper-based robotic applications and active electromagnetic hotspot formation with magnetic fields. They recently published their observations in a well-respected journal in the field.
The researchers demonstrated a strategy based on plasmonic nanoparticles decorated cilia-inspired magnetic actuators that enable highly accessible millimeter-sized hot-spot generation via bending motion under a magnetic field. As a proof-of-concept demonstration, a centipede-inspired robot was fabricated for sample collection and analysis in a target environment.
The study open doors for paper based robotic applications.
