The acoustic streaming field around the tip of the fiberglass in ultrasonic vibration.
The trapping capability characteristics. (a) The largest distance dm at which a single AgNW, initially aligned in the y direction at x = 0, can be sucked to the fiberglass versus the operating frequency for driving voltages of 5, 10, 15, 20, 25, and 30 Vp-p. (b) The maximum length of an individual AgNW which can be sucked onto the fiberglass tip versus the vibration displacement at reference point p.
