Thin Strip Muscles Respond to Electricity

Thin Strip Muscles Respond to Electricity
Thin strip muscles made from improved MXene could have applications in soft robotics and small, artificial muscles.

Developed by a team from Kaist, the ‘muscles’ were made from an improved version of the highly conductive MXene, which previously was too rigid to be applied to flexible polymers. However, the researcher improved on the concept by bonding the MXene into the polymer. The result was a composite material able to flex immediately when triggered by an electrical current—even one at a low voltage—without damaging the material itself.
