Abstract

A rigorous three-dimensional analysis model is established to calculate the restoring force and restoring torque for the self-alignment of the micropart with the binding site in solution using the Surface Evolver Program, which is developed for analyzing the liquid formation due to surface tension and other energies. The motions of the micropart studied include translation, compression, yawing and rolling, respectively.

Keywords

Self-alignment, Interfacial Tension, Restoring Force, Restoring Torque, Fluidic Self-assembly Technique.
