Thermal wrinkling of liquid crystal polymer shell/core spheres

Smart soft materials that can flexibly respond to external multi-physics stimuli, have shown intriguing applications in shape-morphing and morphology control. Here, we present tunable wrinkling patterns in core-shell spheres under thermal load via controlling the orientation of director in nematic  liquid crystal polymer (LCP). To analyze nonlinear instability and morphological evolution of LCP shell/core spheres, we develop a shallow core-shell model that accounts for director-induced anisotropic spontaneous strains.

Temperature–pressure-induced solid–solid 〈100〉 to 〈110〉 reorientation in FCC metallic nanowire
