Phoretic Nano-swimmers

The Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM) image is of ‘Nano Swimmers’ that are currently being investigated for potential use as novel drug carriers. These coiled structures are 25 microns in length, 5 microns in diameter and 300 nanometres in thickness. They are composed of a polymer with nickel/titanium coating and were fabricated by the Multi-Scale Robotics Laboratory, ETH Zurich and in collaboration with the NanoMedicine Laboratory, UCL School of Pharmacy. The swimmers were imaged under a FEI Quanta 200F Scanning Electron Microscope; firstly, the sample was given a 5nm gold coating in a Quorum Q150 Sputter coater and imaged at 5KV. In addition a tilt angle of 65 degrees enhanced their full structure, high resolution digital images were captured and imported into photoshop, where they were artistically manipulated and coloured by Ms Annie Cavanagh.

Self Assembly of Polystyrene Nanospheres

Self assembly of 500 nm polystyrene nanospheres onto optical photoresist. The nanospheres acts like microlenses, exposing the resist and patterning it with a dot structure. After metalisation (in this case sputtered permalloy) the following lift-off leaves the metal structure on the upper pert of the microphoto. In the lower part the original array of self-assembled nanospheres used as microlenses.
