Shape memory polymers: Current research and future applications
After being severely and quasi-plastically distorted, shape memory materials are able to recover their original shape when a right stimulus is applied. This phenomenon is known as the shape memory effect (SME), and it has been found in a number of material systems. The potential applications of SME enable us to reshape our design in many ways.
