Day 1: OSA Materials for Optomechanical Actuation Incubator

Optomechanical actuation is the act of turning light (electro-magnetic energy) into mechanical work. This most commonly calls to mind photovoltaics and solar cells. Solar cells take the energy of the sun and converts it into electricity, which then in turn can be used to do mechanical work. For the Materials for Optomechanical Actuation Incubator, the Hosts Chris Bardeen, University of...
