Matrix electrode array for dielectrophoresis - basic position control
Author: Tomáš Michálek
This work describes the design procedure for a non-contact planar manipulation of micro- and mesoscopic objects using dielectrophoresis. Specifically, it documents the use of commercially available matrix microelectrode array. For it, I created mathematical simulation models using the method of moments, and I used these for debugging of simple position controllers. I verified the functionality in laboratory experiments handling polystyrene microspheres. A prerequisite for these experiments was also my successful resolution of contacting electrode array and a voltage generator.
