The design and dual-mode locomotion of a parallel hybrid nanowire motor, powered by two sources–chemical and magnetic–are described. The hybrid nanomotor relies on a multisegment nanowire, with different portions responsible for catalytic and magnetic propulsion. Such hybrid nanomotors hold promise for the design of self-regulated nanovehicles that adapt their operation according to unexpected events.
