Mimosa Origami: A nanostructure-enabled directional self-organization regime of materials

Wong, William; Li, Minfei; Nisbet, David; Craig, Vincent; Wang, Zuankai; Tricoli, Antonio


One of the innate fundamentals of living systems is their ability to respond toward distinct stimuli by various selforganization behaviors. Despite extensive progress, the engineering of spontaneous motion in man-made inorganic materials still lacks the directionality and scale observed in nature. We report the directional self-organization of soft materials into three-dimensional geometries by the rapid propagation of a folding stimulus along a predetermined path. We engineer a unique Janus...[Show more]
