Acoustic rotation of non-spherical micro-objects: Characterization of acoustophoresis and quantification of rotational stability
Acoustic radiation force and torque arising from wave scattering have the potential to perform the biocompatible, contact-free, and precise translation and rotation of micro-objects. Controllable rotation of objects mainly relies on the use of sophisticated transducer arrays, while it is limited by the spatial Rayleigh limitation and would be costly to miniaturize the array for manipulated objects on the micron scale. Here, we make use of the shape asymmetry of an object and achieve micro-object trap and rotation using a simple standing wavefield. The conformal transformation approach is employed to map an axisymmetric, non-spherical object into a sphere, allowing fast analysis for design or real-time computer-controlled manipulation. A low-cost, simple rotational tweezing system is built, which confirms the theoretical prediction that micro-particles are trapped in the pressure nodes and remotely rotated by the action of the actuator boundaries. The rotational dynamics are guided by two stabilization modes, and Lyapunov stability analysis reveals that at least one mode leads to a stable equilibrium state. We demonstrate the significance of our approach in stably and controllably rotating micron-scale objects. The robustness and versatility of the new handy design hold promise for clinical applications and microscopic research such as drug delivery and microsurgery.
