Flexing Fingers for Micro-Robotics: Scientists Create Powerful Microscale Actuator

Berkeley Lab and UC Berkeley researchers have developed an elegant and powerful new microscale actuator that can flex like a tiny beckoning finger. Based on an oxide material that expands and contracts dramatically in response to a small temperature variation, the actuators are smaller than the width of a human hair and are promising for microfluidics, drug delivery, and artificial muscles.
