A series of pyridine-functionalized poly (N-isopropylacrylamide)- based microgels were synthesized. Subsequently, a structured photonic device was fabricated by sandwiching the microgels between two thin Au layers, and their response to CO2 investigated. We show that devices show an optical...
Poly (N-isopropylacrylamide-co-acrylic acid) (pNIPAm-co-AAc) microgel-based free-standing etalons have been developed by fabricating etalons on a solid support that has been coated with a sacrificial polymer layer. Therefore, the etalon could be easily removed from the solid substrate upon...
In this submission we fabricated a humidity-responsive polymer-based actuator by layering negatively charged poly(N-isopropylacrylamide)-co-acrylic acid microgels and positively charged poly(diallyldimethyl ammonium chloride) on top of a flexible plastic substrate. We show that the extent of the...
