  • Ewoldt, Randy H.; Tourkine, Piotr; McKinley, Gareth H.; Hosoi, Anette E. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2011-07)
    We demonstrate that field-responsive magnetorheological fluids can be used for variable-strength controllable adhesion. The adhesive performance is measured experimentally in tensile tests (a.k.a. probe-tack experiments) ...
  • Lobovsky, Maxim B.; Keating, Steven John; Setapen, Adam M.; Gero, Katy I.; Hosoi, Anette E.; Iagnemma, Karl D.; Cheng, Nadia Gen San (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), 2012-05)
    Hyper-redundant manipulators can be fragile, expensive, and limited in their flexibility due to the distributed and bulky actuators that are typically used to achieve the precision and degrees of freedom (DOFs) required. ...
  • Jung, Sunghwan; Winter, Amos; Hosoi, Anette E. (Elsevier B.V., 2011-05)
    Numerous animals live in, and locomote through, subsea soils. To move in a medium dominated by frictional interactions, many of these animals have adopted unique burrowing strategies. This paper presents a burrowing model ...
  • Ward, Thomas; Wey, Chi; Glidden, Robert; Hosoi, Anette E. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2009-08)
    The flow of viscous, particle-laden wetting thin films on an inclined plane is studied experimentally as the particle concentration is increased to the maximum packing limit. The slurry is a non-neutrally buoyant mixture ...
  • Kurtuldu, H.; Tam, D.; Johnson, K. A.; Gollub, J. P.; Hosoi, Anette E. (American Physical Society, 2013-07)
    We present quantitative measurements of time-dependent flagellar waveforms for freely swimming biflagellated algal cells, for both synchronous and asynchronous beating. We use the waveforms in conjunction with resistive ...
  • McKinley, Gareth H.; Zimoch, Pawel Jerzy; Hosoi, Anette E. (American Physical Society, 2013-07)
    Using discontinuously rate thickening suspensions (DRTS) as a model system, we show that beads-on-a-string morphologies can arise as a result of external viscous drag acting during capillary-driven breakup of a non-Newtonian ...
  • Tam, Daniel See-Wai; Hosoi, Anette E. (American Physical Society, 2011-04)
    We investigate the role of hydrodynamics in the evolution of the morphology and the selection of kinematics in simple uniflagellated microorganisms. We find that the most efficient swimming strategies are characterized by ...
  • Kao, Justin C. T.; Blakemore, Andrea L.; Hosoi, Anette E. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010-06)
    Deposition of bubbles on a wall withdrawn from a liquid bath is a phenomenon observed in many everyday situations—the foam lacing left behind in an emptied glass of beer, for instance. It is also of importance to the many ...
  • Kao, Justin C. T.; Hosoi, Anette E. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2012-04)
    We examine Landau-Levich coating by a suspension of spherical particles. For particles larger than the liquid film thickness, capillary forces lead to self-assembly of monolayer particle aggregates. We observe two regimes ...
  • Kessenich, Grace; Bhola, Shweta; Pletner, Baruch; Horth, Wesley; Hosoi, Anette E. (Society of Photo-optical Instrumentation Engineers, 2009-03)
    This paper presents the outline for a real-time nano-level elastic deformation measurement system for high precision optical metrology frames. Such a system is desirable because elastic deformation of metrology frame ...
  • Winter, Amos; Deits, Robin Lloyd Henderson; Dorsch, Daniel S.; Hosoi, Anette E.; Slocum, Alexander H. (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, 2010-10)
    Razor clams (Ensis directus) are one of nature's most adept burrowing organisms, able to dig to 70cm at nearly 1cm/s using only 0.21J/cm. We discovered that Ensis reduces burrowing drag by using motions of its shell to ...
  • Crowdy, Darren; Lee, Sungyon; Samson, Ophir; Lauga, Eric; Hosoi, Anette E. (Cambridge University Press, 2011-06)
    Biological organisms swimming at low-Reynolds number are often influenced by the presence of rigid boundaries and soft interfaces. In this paper, we present an analysis of locomotion near a free surface with surface tension. ...
  • Burton, Lisa Janelle; Hatton, R. L.; Choset, H.; Hosoi, Anette E. (American Institute of Physics (AIP), 2010-09)
    The scallop theorem posits that a two-link system immersed in a fluid at low Reynolds number cannot achieve any net translation via cyclic changes in its hinge angle. Here, we propose an approach to “breaking” this theorem, ...
