    • Bio-Inspired, Moisture-Powered Hybrid Carbon Nanotube Yarn Muscles 

      Kim, Shi Hyeong; Kwon, Cheong Hoon; Park, Karam; Mun, Tae Jin; Lepro, Xavier; Baughman, Ray H.; Spinks, Geoffrey M.; Kim, Seon Jeong
      Hygromorph artificial muscles are attractive as self-powered actuators driven by moisture from the ambient environment. Previously reported hygromorph muscles have been largely limited to bending or torsional motions or ...
    • Magnetic Torsional Actuation of Carbon Nanotube Yarn Artificial Muscle 

      Lee, D. W.; Kim, S. H.; Kozlov, Mikhail E.; Lepró, Xavier; Baughman, Ray H.; Kim, S. J.
      Magnetically driven torsional actuation of a multiwalled carbon nanotube (MWNT) yarn was realized by first biscrolling NdFeB magnetic particles into helical yarn corridors to make a magnetic MWNT yarn. The actuating device ...
