The authors propose and experimentally demonstrate a conveyor-belt method appropriate for building large-scale microparticle structures by sequentially energizing electrodes to aggregate the particles into predetermined locations and then to translate them collectively to a work area for final assembly. This approach employs collective phenomena in a negatively polarized suspension exposed to a high-gradient strong ac electric field.
