A Planar Dielectrophoretic Microdevice for Particle Manipulation
This paper presents both theoretical and experimental study of particle motion in a typical interdigitated electrode array. Both finite element method and numerical simulation were performed to predict the movement of particles. The simulation results indicated that the particle motion and separation behaviors strongly depend on the combined contributions of a number of parameters, such as the frequency of the electric field, applied voltage, dielectric properties of the particles and the surrounding medium.
