Abstract: Photomechanical actuation is demonstrated in two coupled liquid crystalelastomer photomechanical optical devices PODs acting in series. The responsefunction of an individual POD is characterized and used to predict the temporalresponse of the coupled system. The predicted coupled-system response agreeswith the experiment for several waveforms and frequencies, suggesting thatlarge-scale integration of photomechanical devices is possible.
