    Abstract
    Shape memory materials possess programmable complex and large deformations towards external stimuli, which are particularly essential for their potential applications. For the transformation of planar two-dimensional structures into complex 3D structures, the design of asymmetric or bilayer thin sheets is usually required. In this paper, we propose a facile strategy to achieve these complex 3D structures that can be transformed to various pre-determined shapes sequentially by laser-triggered site-specific deformations. The response of shape memory polycaprolactone to laser is...
