  • Walking like a millipede
    Researchers at ETH and Empa have shown that tiny objects can be made from silicon that are much more deformable and stronger than previously thought. In this way, sensors in smartphones could be made smaller and more robust.Metachronal waves commonly exist in natural cilia carpets. These emergent phenomena, w......
