MoS2-based dual-responsive flexible anisotropic actuators

Author affiliations


A facile approach has been developed to prepare well-designed MoS2-based flexible anisotropic actuators with tunable thermo- and photo-responses, in which MoS2 nanosheets act as the photothermal transduction agents and enable remote and precise control of the actuator locomotion. Taking advantage of the dual-responsive behaviors, programmable locomotion, reversible deformation, good mechanical properties and biocompatibility, the MoS2-based flexible anisotropic actuators are very promising in soft robotics for future intelligent applications.
