Movie S1
Paddle rotation upon voltage pulse switching from 0 V to +5 V for a 120 mm longnanotube yarn half immersed in 0.2M TBA.PF6 (acetonitrile) electrolyte for 5 seconds, followed by the reverse direction rotation on switching from +5 V to 0 V. A real time movie of paddle rotation is followed by a slow motion movie.
Movie S2
Demonstration of a fluidic mixer that is powered by a carbon nanotube torsionalActuator.
