Abstract

In this paper, we present a new photoswitchable viscoelastic material with liquid crystalline natures, which exhibits two types of nematic liquid crystalline phases and a crystal phase beneath the isotropic liquid. We present its light-triggered phase behaviors and photo-switchability of the viscoelastic properties.
