Scope: Engineering applications are driving the development of new materials for enhanced performance and/or new functions. Among them is a group of materials that are able to respond to a particular stimulus by altering their physical and/or chemical properties. Such stimuli include heat (thermo-responsive materials), stress/pressure (mechano-responsive materials), electrical current/voltage (electro-responsive materials), magnetic field (magneto-responsive materials), pH change/solvent/moisture (chemo-responsive materials), light (photo-responsive materials), etc. Technically speaking, these materials are known as stimulus-responsive materials. Among these specific materials, this special topic focuses on research interests that have a direct link to light or color.
