Olga Kuksenok and Anna C. Balazs Modeling the Photoinduced Reconfiguration and Directed Motion of Polymer Gels Advanced Functional Materials 23
Computer simulations of polymer gels containing spirobenzopyran chromophores show that these materials can undergo both 3D shape changes and directed motion under non-uniform illumination. By illuminating the samples through photomasks, these gels can be molded remotely and reversibly into a variety of shapes. Furthermore, repeated motion of light in a specific direction results in the directed motion of the samples.
