A report revealed earlier this morning that some Chinese scientists have developed a new type of bowl-shaped micromotor, using self-developed microfluidic chips for microrobots.
According to the Institute of Mechanics, using self-developed microfluidic chip technology, the Institute of Mechanics’ study team recently constructed bowl-shaped micromotors with varied concave/convex surfaces, which is distinct from past research restrictions.
According to reports, micro-nano robots capable of autonomous movement have rapidly developed in the last ten years. Their main power sources are micro-nano motors, with the most efficient micro-bubble drives.
According to the research team, the micromotor that generates bubbles from the convex surface and advances toward the concave surface has a higher speed.
The findings give a theoretical foundation for using a typical form of micro-motor in micro-robot applications, as well as a new notion for managing the micro-motor’s driving mechanism and the micro-bubbles’ dynamic behavior by shape.
The Microfluidic chip systems are designed at micro levels, and there are channels through which electric current can go. It is defined as a group of canals or an integrated circuit in which fluid, air, or heat channels through microfluidic channels range from a few µm to several mm.
