Cyborg-like microchip valve driven by earthworm muscle

Researchers have developed the first microchip valve powered by living cells. Earthworm muscle tissue allowed for a high contractile force that could be sustained for minutes, and unlike electrically controlled valves, did not require any external power source such as batteries.

On-demand control of terahertz and infrared waves with graphene

A theory from 2006 predicts that it should be possible to use graphene in a magnetic field not only to absorb terahertz and infrared light on demand but also to control the direction of the circular polarisation. Researchers now have succeeded in testing this theory and achieved the predicted results.
