Abstract

This paper describes fabrication and applications of stimuli-responsive hydrogel microfibers for biochemical sensors and actuators. Our group has developed stimuli-responsive hydrogel microsprings (SR springs) for mugnifying the shrink/swell movements. The SR springs, made of composite hydrogel of p(NIPAM-co-AAc) and calcium alginate, were continuously formed by using a bevel-tip capillary. By stimulating single-layered or patterned SR springs, we achieved to magnify the shrink/swell movements and to control the direction of the movements.
