    • Microscopic engine powered by critical demixing 

      Schmidt, F.; Magazzu, Alessandro; Callegari, Agnese; Biancofiore, Luca; Cichos, F.; Volpe, Giovanni (OSA, 2017)
      We propose a new type of engine that is powered by the local, reversible demixing of a critical binary liquid. A microscopic particle is optically trapped and performs revolutions due to the emergence of diffusiophoresis.
