MultiFlag

Design and control of multi flagella microswimmers driven by mobile magnets

ANR-16-CE33-0019

Objectives

The ability to control magnetic capsules manufactured at a micro-scale would open a broad range of applications, inside the body cavities can be reached: stagnant fluids can be found in the spinal cord, brain and cranium or eyes and low velocity flows exist in the urinary tract or capillaries for instance. To develop such future applications, a new generation of microrobots able to efficiently swim in viscous fluid at very low Reynolds number is developed.
