Light driven quasi autonomous rotor microrobots

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution


Autonomous rotor microrobots are designed and built that move on a horizontal flat surface driven by light illuminating vertically the area of motion. The peculiar conditions of achieving rotational motion in such geometry are discussed.
