Crosby Group publishes in Nature Materials

Yongjin Kim*, Jay van den Berg & Alfred Crosby* recently published in Nature Materials. Researchers in the Crosby Group have discovered how to make materials that snap and reset themselves, only relying upon energy flow from their environment. The discovery may prove useful for various industries that want to source movement sustainably, from toys to robotics, and is expected to further inform our understanding of how the natural world fuels some types of movement.
