Abstract

This work presents the successful fabrication of a thermally actuated U-shaped microgripper that has been specially designed to enable low voltage operation for bidirectional in plane deflection. The microgripper tips are carefully designed to match the biological species being manipulated, which has been demonstrated by the successful manipulation of 10 ? 40 ?m diameter particles used to simulate biological cells.
