2D Materials - And The Weird Concept of Zero Dimensions

2D Materials - And The Weird Concept of Zero DimensionsNanomaterials are fascinating tiny substances, and their size gives them some really special characteristics. Think of them in categories like 'zero'-dimensional, 'one'-dimensional, 'two'-dimensional and three-dimensional materials. 'Zero-dimensional???' you ask? This concept is initially challenging to grasp. So, let's unpack this. Watch video

Person-shaped robot liquifies to escape jail

Person-shaped robot liquifies to escape jailInspired by sea cucumbers, engineers have designed miniature robots that rapidly and reversibly shift between liquid and solid states. On top of being able to shape-shift, the robots are magnetic and can conduct electricity. Watch video

Microelectronic SMARTLETs

Microelectronic SMARTLETsAssembly of architectures where multilayer pattern elements using microsystem technology fold up into 3D structures, self-assembling to form microelectronic SMARTLETs with self-propulsion. These SMARTLETs can then be aggregated passively or actively into higher hierarchical assemblies. Watch video

Creating a magnetic liquid marble

Creating a magnetic liquid marbleIn contrast with the microchannel-based fluidics, the manipulation of discrete droplets without using microfluidic channels is a new field. Here, a liquid droplet is not confined to a closed channel and there is no risk of it being adsorbed on a channel wall. A liquid marble, a liquid encapsulated by non-wetting powder, could be a new microfluidic device, which is especially useful for handling single liquid droplet. Watch video

Patterned Bouncing and Directional Transportation of Water DropletsBionic functional surfaces allow the precise control of the directional bouncing of water. Watch video

Smart fluids navigate a jet-printed labyrinth

Smart fluids navigate a jet-printed labyrinthFluids find path through a maze with a single inlet and outlet. The circuit was built by jetting a fluorocarbon through media plus red dye; when blue dye is pumped into the inlet, it takes the path of least resistance through the maze. Watch video

Micro- and nanomotors powered by water as the sole fuel source

Micro- and nanomotors powered by water as the sole fuel sourceThis video shows the ultrafast propulsion of an AlGa/Ti micromotor in water. It shows time-lapse images, taken from SI Video 1, over a 300 ms period. A long tail of hydrogen bubbles generated on one side of the micromotor is clearly observed, reflecting the rapid spontaneous reaction of aluminum with the surrounding water. Watch video

Superhydrophilic wool fabrics

Superhydrophilic wool fabricsThis clip shows the process of the absorption of water droplets on the superhydrophilic wool fabrics. In the video, the fabric on the left is a pristine wool fabric and the right is a silica-grafted wool fabric. The water absorption rates of the silica-grafted wool fabric are fast and the drip diffusion radii are large, which is of great importance to realize the fast absorbing and quick-drying of water or perspiration on the surface of human skin.
