Magneto-Mechanical System to Reproduce and Quantify Complex Strain Patterns in Biological Materials

Based on magneto-active polymers, we provide a non-invasive and real-time control methodology to impose complex mechanical forces on biological systems. The device is conceptualised to be suitable for any traditional microscope! See scheme:

Experimental insights into magneto-mechanical rate dependences in MREs

Comprehensive experimental work on magnetorheological elastomers (MREs) just accepted in Composites Part B as part of our European Research Council project 4D-BIOMAP.

We provide more than 600 magneto-mechanical tests on an extremely soft elastomer (~1-20 kPa). The results show material stiffening of ~200 times for axial compression and ~10 times for shear mode. In addition, we conduct novel experiments providing unprecedented magneto-mechanical rate-dependent couplings.
