    • Self-regulating plant robots: bioinspired heliotropism and nyctinasty 

      Cezan, Süleyman Doruk; Baytekin, Hasan Tarık; Baytekin, Bilge (Mary Ann Liebert, 2020)
      Self-regulation (or so-called homeostasis) is a property of all living organisms to maintain an internal stable state through specialized biofeedback mechanisms under varying external and internal conditions. Although these ...
    • Slit tubes for semisoft pneumatic actuators 

      Belding, L.; Baytekin, Bilge; Baytekin, Hasan Tarık; Rothemund, P.; Verma, M. S.; Nemiroski, A.; Sameoto, D.; Grzybowski, B. A.; Whitesides, G. M. (Wiley, 2018)
      This article describes a new principle for designing soft or ‘semisoft’ pneumatic actuators: SLiT (for SLit-in-Tube) actuators. Inflating an elastomeric balloon, when enclosed by an external shell (a material with higher ...
