We have established that film morphology and laser induced heating from dye absorption are important parameters in the creation of new photonastic materials. Photonastic is defined as regular, repeatable movement in a pre-programmed direction following exposure to light. This work builds upon the development of photonastic polymers of ruthenium sulfoxide complexes, where the action of bending is ascribed to phototriggered isomerization of a sulfoxide ligand in a ruthenium coordination complex that is covalently attached to polynorbornene. The bending is analyzed in terms of a bilayer cantilever model.
