Self-assembling complex and functional structures at the (sub)millimeter scale — •Nicolas Vandewalle — GRASP, Institut de Physique B5a, Sart Tilman, Universite de Liege, B4000 Liege, Belgium

When soft ferromagnetic particles are suspended at air-water interfaces in the presence of a vertical magnetic field, dipole-dipole repulsion competes with capillary attraction such that structures self-assemble. The complex arrangements of such floating bodies are emphasized. By adding a horizontal and oscillating magnetic field, periodic deformations of the assembly are induced. We show herein that collective particle motions induce locomotion at low Reynolds number. The physical mechanisms and geometrical ingredients behind this cooperative locomotion are identified. These physical mechanisms can be exploited to much smaller scales, offering the possibility to create artificial and versatile microscopic swimmers. Moreover, we show that it is possible to generate complex structures that are able to capture particles, perform cargo transport, fluid mixing, etc...
