Soft Matter paper featured in ‘Product Design & Development’

A Soft Matter article by Rafael Verduzco and coworkers at Rice University has been featured in the design engineering publication Product Design & Development. In their paper Shape-responsive liquid crystal elastomer bilayers, the group demonstrate that complex surface patterns and shape changes, including patterned wrinkles, helical twisting, and reversible folding, can be achieved in liquid crystal elastomer–polystyrene bilayers.
