Light-induced stress and work in photomechanical materials

Abstract
Increasingly important photomechanical materials produce stress and mechanical work when illuminated. We propose experimentally accessible performance metrics for photostress and photowork, enabling comparison of materials performance. We relate these metrics to material properties, providing a framework for the design and optimization of photomechanical materials.
