Back Cover: A large increase in the magnitude of the photogenerated stress is observed in a crosslinked azobenzene-functionalized polyimide. Subjecting the material to pre-strain aligns the azobenzene units in the polyimide, which serves to enhance the cooperative motion of the photo chemical mechanism to yield a photogenerated stress of 1.25 MPa. This value is more than two times larger than the stress generated in the “as-prepared” polyimide. Further details can be found in the article by K. M. Lee, D. H. Wang, H. Koerner, R. A. Vaia, L.-S. Tan,* and T. J. White* on page 1189.
