Author affiliations

Abstract

To handle serious underwater oil spills, we have designed a functionally integrated device which can continuously clean up spilled oil underwater or on the water's surface in a directional manner, guided by a magnetic field, collecting the oil into the interior of the device and recycling it. The collecting efficiency is higher than 90%.
