Piezoelectric Nano-Manipulations
Nano manipulation technology has wide potential applications in the nano measurement and assembling, fabrication of nano sensors, treatment of biomedical samples, production of nano structured materials, etc. The piezoelectric nano-manipulation which emerges in 2012, employs the ultrasonic vibration generated by a piezoelectric vibrator to handle individual and/or multiple nanoscale components. It has the merits such as a low temperature rise at the manipulating area, diversified manipulating functions, capability to integrate multiple manipulating functions into one device, compact and light device structure, etc. In 2012, our research group proposed and experimentally verified the principle to ultrasonically trap and transfer an individual nanowire in water in a contact way, which utilizes the acoustic streaming field around a micro manipulating probe. Since then, more piezoelectric nano-manipulation functions have been proposed and experimentally realized by our group. They include the noncontact-type trapping and transfer of individual nanowires, concentration of nano objects on an ultrasonic stage and on a still substrate, rotary driving of an individual nanowire, integration of contact and noncontact type trapping in one piezoelectric device, etc. In this report, the principles, structures and manipulating characteristics of the piezoelectric devices, proposed and developed by our group for nano-manipulations, are reviewed, and the challenges facing the piezoelectric nano manipulation technology are discussed.
