Architected material changes, maintains and reverses shape

Architected material changes, maintains and reverses shape

A new architected material changes shape when a small current is applied, then it keeps that shape when the current is turned off. Reversing the current also reverses the direction of the change of the shape. Here a diagram of the material's creation via lithography to the material at work. The study was a collaboration between CalTech, Georgia Tech and ETH Zurich. Credit: CalTech / Georiga Tech / ETH Zurich
