Back Cover: A photoresponsive liquid-crystalline elastomeric polymer film shows reversible deformation under alternating UV and natural light. The film serves as an optical high-pass/low-pass switch of a laser beam: when the UV light is on, it bends up and blocks the laser beam; when the UV light is off, the film flattens out, allowing the beam to pass.
