Smart Materials

Organised by:

Registration Closed

This event is no longer available for registration.


Smart materials allow solid objects to sense, adapt, morph and respond to their environment.

Properties like shape and colour become transient upon changes like temperature, light levels, moisture, pressure or magnetism. Many examples of smart materials exist today, but their widespread adoption has been limited.

In this talk, award-winning materials engineer Dr Anna Ploszajski will explore why these remarkable materials have proven so difficult to handle, and where we might expect to see them impact our lives in the future.
