Smart materials is a term for materials that appear to respond intelligently to their environment. Many of the novel materials here are also smart, such as UV beads, thermochromic film and shape memory alloys, but others, such as polymorph, are not.
The activities in the documents below focus on smart chemical materials. There are more, such as QTC, that you will find in the Physics section.
