Mechanically controlled pattern formation

Printer-friendly versionPrinter-friendly version
Our colleagues in a collaboration with researchers from Bilkent University showed the formation of periodic patterns by a diffusion–precipitation reaction in a stretchable hydrogel and the control of the obtained patterns by the unprecedented and uncommon method of mechanical input. The study has been published in Advanced Materials.
