Abstract

Large arrays of multi stimuli responsive, hydrogel based, cilia arc produced by means of micro-fabrication techniques. The cilia operate in aqueous solutions and their actuation can be triggerd by pH change, electric and/or magnetic fields. This artificial cilia system can combine, in a single unit, detection/triggered reaction behaviour. An external change in an environment, such as a decrease in pH, triggers collective cilia shrinkage and motile response, to an external time-dependent magnetic field.
