Powering 3D Printed Micromotors With E.Coli Bacteria, Sapienza University Study

Published: Jul 21, 2017

Researchers from the Sapienza University of Rome have created 3D printed micromotors that can be powered by E.coli bacteria.

The group created micromotors using a custom-built two photon polymerization setup and were able to autonomously capture and harness the swimming bacteria. Two photon polymerization is a type of stereolithography and involves the use of a laser to cure materials into intricate 3D structures.
