Force activation is triggered in a stretched polymer wire with color changes produced as a consequence of the molecules undergoing structural and conformational changes. A markedly increased efficiency of force activation is achieved by decreasing the diameter of the wires. The hybrid mechanosensitive polymer wire can function as micro- and nanoscale force sensor.
