Unipolar Carbon Nanotube Muscles: Ten to Thirty Times Human Muscle and Two to Six times Diesel V8

Researchers describe creating powerful, unipolar electrochemical yarn muscles that contract more when driven faster, thereby solving important problems that have limited the applications for these muscles. This polymer coating converts the normal bipolar actuation of carbon nanotube yarns to unipolar actuation, where the muscle actuates in one direction over the entire stability range of the …

Meta DNA Revolutionizes DNA Nanotechnology By Scaling Up Size By 1000 to 1 Million Times

The new meta-DNA self-assembly concept may totally transform the microscopic world of structural DNA nanotechnology. Decades ago a huge milestone in DNA technology was the invention of DNA origami, where a long single-stranded DNA is folded into designated shapes with the help of hundreds of short DNA staple strands. DNA nanotechnology had challenges assembling larger …
