Abstract [en]

Artificial muscles are the longtime dream of human being to replace the existing engines, motors, and piezoelectric actuators because of the low-noise, environment-friendly, and energy-saving actuators (or power force generators). This chapter describes applications of conducting polymers (CPs) to EAPs such as bending actuators, microactuators, and linear actuators. The bending actuators were applied to diaphragm pumps, swimming devices, and flexural-jointed grippers with the trilayer configurations. On the other hand, the microactuators have the advantage of short diffusion times and thus fast actuation. Since the CP actuators operate in any salt solutions, such as a saline solution, cell culture media, and biological liquid, the PPy microactuators have potential applications in microfluidics and drug delivery, cell biology, and medical devices. Furthermore, the linear actuators were developed for the applications to the Braille cells, artificial muscles for soft robots.
