Abstract

This paper presents a preliminary empirical characterization of modulated electric signal waveforms used to manipulate particles in colloids and deposit them on a substrate. Particle mobility enhancement is demonstrated by the combination of AC and DC electric signals inside of an adapted electrolytic cell, which acts as a lower order model for a micro-additive manufacturing process, currently under development. Square wave waveforms are found to be suitable candidates for a primary actuation signal for the micro additive manufacturing prototype device.
