Cover Picture: 3D Polymer Microframes That Exploit Length-Scale-Dependent Mechanical Behavior (Adv. Mater. 16/2006)
The cover shows a simulation of a four-functional microframe network undergoing plastic deformation, illustrating the significant ductility of the connector struts between nodes, as reported for such microframes fabricated by Thomas and co-workers on p. 2123. The inset shows a scanning electron microscopy image of an SU8 epoxy microframe in a region of the structure with large strain-to-break of the component struts.
