Intelligent materials

Based on scientific findings and with new technologies, intelligent materials are developed that adapt flexibly to their environmental conditions. In this way, the functional spectrum of a material can be expanded by reacting, for example, to temperature fluctuations, a change in pH or targeted mechanical stress. 

Sensor or actuator functions can be integrated into the material. Through a mimetic poly alloy, smart materials can heal themselves. Metamaterials, which interact with light and electromagnetic radiation differently than natural materials, create new possibilities for the production of lenses. Smart materials are more powerful and often less expensive in the process. 

Significance for optics: 

Intelligent materials are essential for the future of optics. Current developments such as global warming require materials to become more resilient to external influences such as light, temperature or humidity.  

The adaptive capabilities of smart materials allow them to be used in a wide range of application areas and offer solutions for individual and challenging projects of the future. Collaboration is key in that area, as the adaption of material creates new opportunities.
