Electrochemomechanical Devices from Conjugated Polymers
2016 (English)In: Reference Module in Materials Science and Materials Engineering / [ed] Saleem Hashmi, Oxford: Elsevier, 2016, 1-5 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Conjugated polymer actuators are devices where the volume of a conjugated (or conducting) polymer material is changed during a change of the state of oxidation or reduction of the polymer. This volume change can be utilized to construct actuators, for instance as a single layer or fiber resulting in a linear actuator or assembled into a multilayer structure where the active material is combined with a passive supporting material forming bending actuator.
