Heat-controlled micropillar array device for microsystems technology

A new temperature-controlled smart soft material micropillar array has been fabricated via in situ integration of the liquid-crystalline elastomer-based component into the hybrid microdevice. Such design allows for developing pushing elements with fast lifetime values of ca. 5 s, and opens huge opportunities Liquid Crystal Elastomers
