Multifunctional bacterial microswimmer able to deliver cargo and destroy itself

The untethered biohybrid microswimmer is able to transport and deliver cargo encapsulated into a guidable red blood cell, while an attached bacterium, one of the most efficient swimmers in nature, acts as a propeller to move it forward. Once it has reached its destination and delivered its cargo, the scientists can destroy the microswimmer using infrared light.

Unusual magnetic structure may support next-generation technology

Although helical structures are typically formed by magnetic moments that wind around an axis in a set direction, researchers discovered that Fe3PO7 does not pick a particular direction and allows only short-range helical structures to form. These structures may provide novel technological capabilities.
