- ... Liquid crystal elastomers (LCEs) exhibit anisotropic mechanical, thermal, and optical properties. The director orientation within an LCE can be spatially localized into voxels [three-dimensional (3-D) volume elements] via photoalignment surfaces. Here, we prepare nanocomposites in which both the orientation of the LCE and single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) are locally and arbitrarily oriented in ...
