Fig. 1. (a) Optical images of a temperature responsive LCE spindle microparticle. (b) Schematic of directed bending of a soft matrix embedded with LCE microparticles. (c) (L) Bright-field microscopy images of the dually responsive LCE microparticles programmed with different orientations under the magnetic field. (M) Photographs of the initially flat sheet that bends along the in-plane directions at 180oC with cuts along the intersections. Cut length: 0.4 cm. (R) Finite element simulations of the bent film. Sample size is 1 cm x 1 1 cm x 200 μm.
