Abstract

Fluid-assisted assembly refers to a number of processes that utilize a fluid medium or fluidic forces to assemble components. Fluid-assisted assembly processes often use a fluidic medium to overcome the challenges with grasping and releasing microscale components using traditional methods. These processes can utilize capillary, viscous, magnetic, electrical, and gravitational forces. This category encompasses both stochastic self-assembly processes and directed processes.
