This article is from Nanoscale Research Letters, volume 9.AbstractDielectrophoresis DEP has been widely used to manipulate, separate, and concentrate microscale particles. Unfortunately, DEP force is difficult to be used in regard to the manipulation of nanoscale molecules-particles. For manipulation of 50- to 100-nm particles, the electrical field strength must be higher than 3 × 106 V-m, and with a low applied voltage of 10 Vp-p, the electrode gap needs to be reduced to submicrons. Our research consists of a novel and simple approach, using a several tens micrometers scale electrode low cost and easy to fabricate to generate a dielectrophoretic microparticle assembly to form nanogaps with a locally amplified alternating current AC electric field gradient, which is used to rapidly trap nanocolloids. The results show that the amplified DEP force could effectively trap 20-nm colloids in the nanogaps between the 5-μm particle aggregates. The concentration factor at the local detection region was shown to be approximately 5 orders of magnitude higher than the bulk solution. This approach was also successfully used in bead-based surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy SERS for the rapid identification of bacteria from diluted blood.
