... worms, extending the bending rigidity to millimeters. Through partial crosslinking, polymerized worms are shown to lock in a spontaneous curvature at a novel fluid-to-solid percolation point. The dynamics of distinct, branched conformations are also imaged for recently discovered Y-junctioned ...
