Title of Contract, Award, or Gift: Designing Microstructure in Ordered Polymer Actuators

Name of Granting or Contracting Agency/Entity: US Air Force Office of Scientific Res

Program Title: N/A
CFDA Linked: Air Force Defense Research Sciences Program


We seek to demonstrate actuating composites where programmed microstructure leads to reversible changes in shape and maximizes specific work capacity of the actuator. We propose to accomplish this by modifying stimuli-responsive liquid crystal elastomers both microstructurally and chemically.
