Xue Li and Michael J. Serpe Understanding and Controlling the Self-Folding Behavior of Poly (N-Isopropylacrylamide) Microgel-Based Devices Advanced Functional Materials 24
Self-folding polymer-based materials are fabricated by depositing a humidity responsive polymer layer on plastic substrates of various dimensions. A mathematical model is developed to describe and predict the self-folding characteristics of these devices. Using this model, it is possible to design materials that self-fold into predetermined three-dimensional structures of varying complexities.
