Research Description

Yang's research focuses on micro-scale 3D printing. He plans to fabricate miniaturized actuators using shape-memory polymers (SMPs). They are able to change shape when exposed to some external stimulus like heat, light, electricity, etc. His group actually coined a new term for it - 4D printing.
