Printing ferromagnetic domains
for untethered fast-transforming soft materials
Yoonho Kim, Hyunwoo Yuk
Research from this year.
Soft materials capable of transforming between three-dimensional (3D) shapes in response to stimuli such as light, heat, solvent, electric and magnetic fields have applications in diverse areas such as flexible electronics, soft robotics and biomedicine. In particular, magnetic fields offer a safe and effective manipulation method for biomedical applications, which typically require remote actuation in enclosed and confined spaces...
