Actuating individual electrospun hydrogel nanofibres

Author affiliations

Abstract

The actuation of a single hydrogel nanofibre is measured for the first time by AFM. The actuation stress generated was comparable to that produced by skeletal muscle and the actuation rate was significantly increased by the nanoscale dimensions of the fibre.
