We have presented the first direct observation of electric field induced rotation of epoxy based polymer rotors. Polymer disks, hollow cylinders and gears were prepared in few micrometer dimensions as rotors. Electrorotation of these sub-millimeter sized tools was studied under uniform dc electric field. The effects of shape, size and thickness were investigated. The novel epoxy based micro devices show intensive spinning in a uniform dc electric field. The rotational speed of micron-sized polymer rotors can be conveniently tuned in a wide range (between 300 and 3000 rpm) by the electric field intensity, opening new perspectives for their use in several MEMS applications.
