Proceedings Paper

Nano photonic - micro robotics (Conference Presentation)
Author(s): Diederik S. Wiersma

Paper Abstract

We will review recent work on nano and micro structured polymers, in particular liquid crystalline elastomers, such as to realise small, complex, structures that deform when exposed to light. The goal is to create artificial arms, and legs, walking and swimming artificial micro creatures, and photonic components, like micro resonators that adapt to their environment.
