Abstract:

Stimuli-responsive microfibers are fabricated by extruding mixed solutions of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acrylic acid) (pNIPAM-AAc) and sodium alginate (Na-alginate) using a microfluidic spinning system. The fabricated microfibers shrink and swell with temp...

Abstract:

We report a general method to fabricate miniaturized soft robots. For the first time, a freestanding microscale robotic finger/tentacle has been realized by heterogeneous integration of soft material polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS), liquid metal (LM), and silicon...

Abstract:

Microfluidic components capable of mimicking the functions of electronic circuit elements are critical to applications including soft robots [1] and biochemical fluids processing [2-4]. The emergence of state-of-the-art additive manufacturing or “three-dimensi...
