Abstract

We propose on-chip microparticle manipulation technique using vibration-induced flow around asymmetric structures. Asymmetric flows are induced around the asymmetric structures when we apply circular vibration to the chip. Thus, the flow pattern can be switched by changing directions of applied vibrations. In this study, we apply the switching of flow pattern to change the manipulation mode, such as "trap mode" and "transport mode". Furthermore, we apply this mode switching to loading manipulation which can feed microparticles one by one with controlled spacing and timing.
