Abstract

We present a new method of building electro-microdevices through the assembly of several commercially available components. Our approach overcomes a number of limitations commonly encountered in studying field-driven phenomena in suspensions at the micro-scale. The proposed method is utilized for the assembly of a microdevice equipped with microelectrode arrays to demonstrate that the application of a high-gradient AC electric field in the MHz-frequency range to an aqueous suspension of polystyrene beads enables one to form and transport distinct particle structures.
