MEAM Seminar: “Kirigami: Programming Cutting and Folding from Microscale to Meter Scale”

September 28 at 10:00 AM - 11:30 AM
Zoom – Email MEAM for Link, peterlit@seas.upenn.edu

Programmable shape-shifting materials can take different physical forms to achieve multifunctionality in a dynamic and controllable manner. By introducing holes and cuts in 2D sheets, we demonstrate dramatic color and shape change and super-conformability via collapsing or expanding of the hole arrays in the micro- and macroscales. When choosing the cuts and geometry correctly, we […]
