Dynamically-tunable colloidal band-pass and band-gap filters
We theoretically study particle motion on a periodic array of positive and negative magnetization domains having non-equal widths driven by a multi-frequency magnetic field input signal. Colloidal particles move across the substrate with positive, zero, or negative time-averaged velocity depending on the frequency ratio, the phase difference, and the ratio of the external field strength to the substrate magnetization. Simulations show that particles of a certain size range can either be transported or locally trapped, thereby providing a mechanism for implementing tunable colloidal band-pass and colloidal band-gap filters. © 2014 AIP Publishing LLC.
