This paper demonstrates a unique way of creating heterogeneous layered structures of soft functional materials for advanced transducer applications. Hydrogel droplets with different composites were patterned by a “two-parallel plate” configuration used in microfluidics applications. Resulted heterogeneous layered structures of hydrogel were created, generating reconfigurable 3D (3-dimensional) deformation responding to discrete levels of stimulation inputs.
