Soft Matter Seminar: Soft Materials that Mimic Biological Motion and Self Assembly

Alfred J. Crosby, Professor University of Massachusetts Amherst and Editor-in-Chief of the journal Soft Matter will present the online seminar “Soft Materials for Autonomous Motion and Mesoscale Assembly” Noon, May 24, 2022.  The talk describes ways that structural asymmetries found in biological systems can be implemented with polymer gels to obtain high power actuation, complex motions and involved self-assemblies of mesoscale structures.
