A highly interdisciplinary MURI team that brings together expertise in theory, computation, and experiment spanning multiple length and time scales and material systems to develop a fundamental understanding of how materials can be designed to effectively convert light energy into mechanical work, deformation, and changes in properties.

This work was supported by the office of Naval Research through the MURI on Photomechanical Material Systems (ONR N00014-18-1-2624).
