Optical motion control of maglev graphite

December 31, 2012

maglev_graphite

Graphite has been known as a typical diamagnetic material and can be levitated in the strong magnetic field. Here we show that the magnetically levitating pyrolytic graphite can be moved in the arbitrary place by simple photoirradiation. It is notable that the optical motion control system described in this paper requires only NdFeB permanent magnets and light source.

The optical movement is driven by photothermally induced changes in the… read more
