Abstract [en]

Actuators made of conjugated polymers such aspolypyrrole are interesting candidates as active elements inmedical devices since they can be fabricated in small sizes andoperated in saline solutions. In addition they can bemicrofabricated and integrated on silicon chips for instance forlab-on-a-chip and cell biology applications. Here, devicescomprising polypyrrole (PPy) microactuators for mechanicalstimulation of single cells are presented. In addition, novelinterfacing and patterning methods for conjugated polymer(micro-) actuators are reported that open up for enhancedfunctionality and increased complexity of micromanipulatorsand microrobotics for instance for biomedicine.
