Contact: Yassaman   (847) 491-7650

Group: Physics and Astronomy Colloquia

Category: Academic


Magnetic fields exert controllable forces that generate microscopic actuation and locomotion in soft materials with superparamagnetic or ferromagnetic components. Magnetoelasticity is used here to describe elastic filaments, membranes and hydrogels with magnetic components under the influence of external magnetic fields, and the shapes changes in terms of their material parameters and actuation mechanisms.
