English Mechanochromic materials respond to mechanical stimuli with a change of their optical properties. Such materials are of interest for many technological applications and support fundamental research as they help improving the understanding of stress transfer in polymeric objects and aid in the identification of the processes that lead to mechanical failure. In this highlight, different approaches are discussed that permit the design of polymeric materials, which signal mechanical stresses through a chromic response. This highlight emphasizes materials that exhibit mechanically induced changes of their intrinsic absorption or emission properties. These responses almost exclusively originate from changes of molecular structure, conformational rearrangements, or disruption of intermolecular interactions.
