An Air Force Research Laboratory research team has developed a 3-D printed polymer-based foam structure that responds to the force of a shock wave to act as a one-way switch. These images show the material’s formation of jets, which localize shock wave energy in one direction, but not the other. (U.S Air Force photo illustration)
