Microscopic engine powered by critical demixing

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access


We propose a new type of engine that is powered by the local, reversible demixing of a critical binary liquid. A microscopic particle is optically trapped and performs revolutions due to the emergence of diffusiophoresis.
