Finnish researchers at Tampere University of Technology (TUT) have achieved a breakthrough in reconfiguring light-controlled materials, while also gaining a greater degree of control over their movements. The researchers changed the shape, length, and/or thickness of the materials, using light as the stimulus. While potential applications range from microrobotics to tunable optical materials, associate professor Arri Priimägi, who leads the Smart Photonic Materials (SPM) group at TUT, told Photonics Media that the research — published in Nature Communications...Read full article
