Abstract
This investigation presents a new approach to obtain free-standing thermally-triggered “two-way” shape-memory actuators by realizing multilayer structures constituted by glassy thermoset (GT) films anchored to a previously programmed liquid-crystalline network (LCN) film. The GT is obtained via dual-curing of off-stoichiometric “thiol-epoxy” mixtures, thus enabling the development of complex actuator configurations thanks to the easy processing in the intermediate stage, and a compact an...
