Influence of semiconducting properties of nanoparticle coating on the electrochemical actuation of liquid metal marble
Sivan, Vijay, Tang, Shi-Yang, O'Mullane, Anthony P., Petersen, Phred, Kalantar-zadeh, K., Khoshmanesh, Khashayar, & Mitchell, Arnan (2014) Influence of semiconducting properties of nanoparticle coating on the electrochemical actuation of liquid metal marble. Applied Physics Letters, 105, p. 121607.
Semiconducting properties of nanoparticle coating on liquid metal marbles can present opportunities for an additional dimension of control on these soft objects with functional surfaces in aqueous environments. We show the unique differences in the electrochemical actuation mechanisms of liquid metal marbles with n- and p-type semiconducting nanomaterial coating. A systematic study on such liquid metal marbles shows voltage dependent nanoparticle cluster formation and morphological changes of the liquid metal core during electrochemical actuations and these observations are unique to p-type nanomaterial coated liquid metal marbles.
