ATP-driven motor proteins, which function in cell motility and organelle transport, have potential applications as bio-inspired micro-devices; however, their control remains unsatisfactory. Here, we show rapid-velocity control of actin filaments interacting with myosin motors using voltage applied to Pt electrodes in an in vitro motility system, by which(More)
This paper proposes a new method of output optimization for a wideband vibration-based impact mode piezoelectric power generator. The method utilizes indirect impact configuration so that the impact forces will be optimally transferred to the device. As a result, at certain frequency, the peak voltage increases by 4.3 times that of the direct impact(More)
