|Abstract:||The term "active matter"describes a class of out-of-equilibrium systems, whose ability to transform environmental to kinetic energy is sought after in multiple fields of science. A challenge that still remains is to craft nanometer-sized active particles, whose motion can be efficiently directed by externally applied bio-noninvasive stimuli. Adding a magnetic component and therefore being able to direct the motion of active nanoparticles with an applied magnetic field is one of the promising solutions in the field. In this study, we employ molecular dynamics simulations to predict an external field-induced flow that arises in mixtures of magneto-active nanosized cubic and spherical particles with distinct mutual orientations between magnetization and propulsion. We explain why the flux of the suspended particles in the field direction does not only depend on the angle between the active force, driving a particle forward, and the orientation of its magnetization, but also on particle shape and inter-particle interactions. Our results show that by tuning those parameters, one can achieve complete separation of particles according to their magnetization orientation. Based on our findings, along with optimizing the cargo properties of magneto-active nano-units, the actual composition of the magneto-active particle suspension can be characterized. © the Owner Societies.|
