  • Abstract : Modern responsive materials such as liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) can be pre-programmed to undergo spatially inhomogeneous deformations in response to external stimuli such as heat and light. Shape-programming of LCEs has been the subject of intense research in recent years, resulting in the discovery of patterning designs and techniques that allow flat 2D sheets to assume target geometries upon activation. In this talk, we present recent mathematical, computational and experimental advances in shape-programming of LCEs.
