Title: (EN) Active fibre
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

An active fibre comprising material activated by an external stimulus, wherein the fibre has a first configuration in an unactivated state, and in response to activation by the external stimulus the fibre adopts a second, increased twist, configuration, relative to the first configuration, and wherein the fibre can reversibly move between the active state and the unactivated state.
