The confinement of LCE materials into surface monodomains via micropatterning leads to the formation of reversible, shape-shifting surface patterns. The individual features are liquid crystalline monodomains, and by switching to an isotropic state using light or heat, the features switch between imprinted circular features and anisotropic liquid crystalline features.
