Force Sensors: Hybrid Mechanoresponsive Polymer Wires Under Force Activation (Adv. Mater. 12/2013)
Force activation is triggered in a stretched polymer wire with color changes produced as the molecules undergo structural and conformational changes. Nongjian Tao, Jinghong Li, and co-workers show on page 1729 that the hybrid mechanosensitive polymer wire can function as a micro- and nanoscale force sensor.
