Mentions: In contrastto most synthetic, surface tension driven, self-propelled systems,microorganisms almost exclusively utilize mechanical self-propulsion,akin to a swimming motion or the corkscrew motion of a boat’smotor. The low Reynolds number at the nanoscale limits the numberof swimming mechanisms that are viable,1036 as any useful motion must involve a nonreciprocal motion to breakthe time reversal symmetry.26,1037−1044 Various solutions have been proposed (Figure 37).1041,1045−1050 The key point in each is that they must possess at least two hingepoints; no system with a sole hinge point can be nonreciprocal. Thesequential use of each hinge point allows motion at low Reynolds number.
