Light driven passive and active motion of colloidal particles — •Pooja Arya, David Feldmann, and Svetlana Santer — University of Potsdam, Potsdam, Germany
We report on how one can manipulate an ensemble of colloidal particles trapped at a solid/liquid interface during irradiation with light of different wavelengths. The colloids are dispersed in an aqueous solution of photosensitive azobenzene containing cationic surfactant, which can photo-isomerize from trans to cis state under irradiation with light of appropriate wavelength. When focused light is applied, light-driven diffusioosmotic (LDDO) flow1 is generated at the solid/liquid interface resulting in a passive motion of particles within this flow. Utilizing the same LDDO mechanism one can also induce active motion of porous particles. Here the radially directed flow is generated by and around a single porous colloid when it is irradiated with either UV or blue light. This results in either mutual long-range diffusioosmotic repulsion of the particles or in even self-propelled motion when the colloids are turned into a Janus-like shape. Here, we discuss how to extend of passive and active motion of colloidal particles depends on the irradiation conditions such as wavelengths and intensities of light.
