Exploring optical mechanotransduction in fluorescent liquid crystal elastomers.

Abstract

Carbazole-based nematic liquid single crystal elastomers switch their fluorescence mechanically on demand enabling a fast optical mechanotransduction under ambient conditions. The identification of the key factors controlling such process is of utmost importance since it might lead to a significant improvement of the transducing abilities of these smart… (More)
