We describe a functional soft material that can spontaneously repair damage by straightforward application of light illumination. The composite material is composed of a common ionic liquid (IL), 1-butyl-3-methylimidazolium hexafluorophosphate ([C4mim]PF6), and a well-defined ABA triblock copolymer consisting of the IL-compatible poly(ethylene oxide) (PEO) middle block with thermo- and photosensitive random copolymers combining N-isopropylacrylamide (NIPAm) and 4-phenylazophenyl methacrylate… Expand
