Lateral Optoelectronic Tweezers (LOET) patterns a lateral electrical field by selectively illuminating a thin photoconductive film between two metal electrodes. The resulting electrical gradients can be used to manipulate nanowires by dielectrophoresis (DEP). The goals of this project are to use this force to position, orientate and then assemble nanowires into arbitrary patterns.
