Single-layer dual-phase nematic elastomer films with bending, accordion-folding, curling and buckling motions

Abstract

In this communication, we describe a two-stage temperature-varied photopatterning protocol to synthesize a series of single-layer dual-phase liquid crystalline elastomer films, which have the capabilities to perform versatile three-dimensional motions, such as bending, accordion-folding, wrinkling, curling, and buckling, under thermal stimulus.
