In article number 2000462, David J. Collins, Ye Ai, and co‐workers demonstrate the generation of robust nanoscale force gradients from interactions between MHz acoustic waves and nanocavities, which enables massively multiplexed sub‐micron particle trapping within these nanocavities at the single‐particle level.

High‐resolution, 3D printed photonic waveguide devices are fabricated using two‐photon polymerization laser lithography (see article number 2000613 by Dawn T. H. Tan and co‐workers). Suspended waveguides with arc supports and 3D spiral waveguides are demonstrated for light guiding in three dimensions. Air‐bridge waveguide couplers with a coupling loss of 1.6 dB facilitate coupling with fibers. The fabricated waveguides are demonstrated for error‐free transmission of 30 Gb s−1 nonreturn to zero (NRZ) and 56 Gb s−1 pulse amplitude modulation (PAM‐4) high‐speed data. The results highlight interesting new capabilities enabled by 3D laser lithography that transcend the limitations of conventional lithography.

In article number 1806698, Guoying Gu, Qi Ge, and co‐workers develop a paradigm to design and manufacture fast‐response, stiffness‐tunable (FRST) soft actuators via hybrid multimaterial 3D printing. The robotic gripper with three FRST actuators demonstrates a high load capacity and shape adaptivity by lifting objects with arbitrary shapes and various weights spanning from less than 10 g to 1.5 kg.

In article number 1807900, Xiaogang Liu, Joel K. W. Yang, and co‐workers report tunable‐resonator upconverted emission (TRUE) color printing, which displays a plasmonic color image under white light while revealing a covert upconversion luminescence appearance under near‐infrared laser excitation. A range of luminescent colors and emission enhancement are achieved through incorporating monolayer upconversion nanocrystals within the hot spots of gap‐plasmon modes. The TRUE color printing is promising for optical security.
