3d-microjetsMagnetic microrobots provide opportunities in the fields of biological micromanipulation and minimally invasive surgery (e.g., micromanipulation of cells, ophthalmic microsurgery and development of new drugs). A major requirement for implementation of these microrobotic applications is precise control of the microrobots. This project focusses on developing electromagnetic systems and techniques for image-based magnetic control of self-propelled and biologically-inspired microrobots.
