Materials & Bioengineering
Unlike conventional materials, autonomic materials dynamically sense, react, and adapt to external stimuli. Typically, these materials possess multiple functionalities, where both the stimuli and the responses can be thermal, mechanical, optical, or chemical in nature. Southwest Research Institute (SwRI) has direct experience in the formulation of multifunctional nanostructures and has developed Nano-Lamp™ technology for photochemical triggering.
