The Department of Materials Science has selected a paper co-authored by MML's James Elliott as the research paper of the month of September.
MSM's Research paper of the month: "Electro-mechanical actuator with muscle memory"

Cover of the Journal of Materials Chemistry C.

The paper, written in collaboration with the Active and Intelligent Materials Lab and published in the Journal of Materials Chemistry C, describes the synthesis and properties of a novel hybrid material that combines the functionalities of ionic polymer actuators and shape-memory polymers. This new material behaves as an electro-mechanical memory with programmable electrical actuation.
