Motion Control of Micro-/Nanomotors
- Wei Zhe Teo, Martin Pumera*
As we progress towards employing self-propelled micro-/nanomotors in envisioned applications such as cargo delivery, environmental remediation, and therapeutic treatments, precise control of the micro-/nanomotors direction and their speed is essential. In this Review, major emerging approaches utilized for the motion control of micro-/nano-motors have been discussed, together with the lastest publications describing these approaches. Future studies could incorporate investigations on micro-/nanomotors motion control in a real-world environment in which matrix complexity might disrupt successful manipulation of these small-scale devices.
