Bioinspired fibers change color when stretched — Harvard School of Engineering and Applied Sciences
Interesting photonic fiber research, which resembles dichroic materials, but because it is stretchable, allows active changing of the color by adjusting the bandgap. Possible uses in smart cloth showing deformation damage, or as a possible active camouflage textile system.

NASA - OCCAMS: Optically Controlled and Corrected Active Meta-material Space Structures
Wow, using photonic muscles embedded in a deployable thin film mirror, using a raster scanning laser to tweak the mirror as an active optical correction primary aperture mirror by using the muscles to deform the mirror. But, the concept suspiciously looks similar to a stealth radar deflection cone for spysats patented by Teledyne Ryan and allegedly used on Misty 1/2 and NROL-15.
