Title
(EN) METHOD OF ASSEMBLING MOBILE MICRO-MACHINES AND A MOBILE MICRO-MACHINE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ D'ASSEMBLAGE DE MICRO-MACHINES MOBILES ET MICRO-MACHINE MOBILE
Abstract
(EN)
The invention relates to a method of assembling mobile micro-machines comprising a main body and at least one actuating element, wherein the method comprises the steps of defining a 3D-shape of elements of the mobile micro-machines, the elements comprising components such as the main body and/or the at least one actuating element; fabricating said elements, said step of fabrication comprising at least the fabrication of the main body, the main body comprising one or more edges; and assembling said mobile micro-machines by applying an external electric field, wherein said external electric field forms electric field gradients at said one or more edges and wherein said gradients attract said actuating element so that the main body and the at least one actuating element self-assemble into a micro-machine at said one or more edges.The invention further relates to a mobile micro-machine.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un procédé d'assemblage de micro-machines mobiles comprenant un corps principal et au moins un élément d'actionnement, le procédé comprenant les étapes consistant à définir une forme 3D d'éléments des micro-machines mobiles, les éléments comprenant des composants tels que le corps principal et/ou le ou les éléments d'actionnement ; à fabriquer lesdits éléments, ladite étape de fabrication comprenant au moins la fabrication du corps principal, le corps principal comprenant un ou plusieurs bords ; et à assembler lesdites micro-machines mobiles par application d'un champ électrique externe, ledit champ électrique externe formant des gradients de champ électrique au niveau dudit ou desdits bords et lesdits gradients attirant ledit élément d'actionnement de sorte que le corps principal et ledit au moins un élément d'actionnement s'auto-assemblent dans une micro-machine au niveau dudit ou desdits bords. L'invention concerne en outre une micro-machine mobile.
