Ali’s paper “Dynamic Manipulation of Droplets using Mechanically Tunable Microtextured Chemical Gradients” was published in Nature Communications. This work was featured in an invited blog post in the Nature Portfolio Chemistry Community “Stop and Go: Stretchable Tracks Direct Microdroplet Traffic,” and picked up by numerous media outlets: Nebraska Today, Phys.org, Nanowerk: “New technique acts as acclerator, brake for microscopic droplets” Congrats to Ali and his coauthors!
Our paper “Surface molding of multi-stimuli-responsive microgel actuators” was published in MRS Bulletin. This article is part of the special issue: Materials Challenges in Soft Robotics. Great work all involved!
