Paper Abstract

Inspired by natural multifunctionality, mimumes are microfibrous multifunctional metamaterials. Their microfibrosity engenders multifunctionality. Poly(p-xylylene) polymers that are currently used in bulk non-fibrous forms for packaging and tribological applications in electronic and biomedical arenas are excellent initial candidates to fabricate mimumes. In microfibrous forms, these polymers are expected to display simultaneous ultrasonic, biomedical, terahertz, light, and energy (SUBTLE) functionalities, thereby furthering the paradigm of design for system performance.
