Abstract

This paper describes assembly of three dimensional cellular structure by optical tweezers. We attempted to construct a three dimensional quasi living machine in small space with muscle cells. Cardiomyocytes were manipulated by using laser optical tweezers at wavelength of 1064 nm. We demonstrated a nano assembly of a cell-driven nano-mechanical tweezers by using a optical tweezers. The nano mechanical tweezers was designed as single cardiomyocyte diven nano-machine. The nano tweezers was made of diamond-like carbon rod which was fabricated by threedimensional deposition of focused ion beam chemical vapour deposition.
