Conjugated polymer (CP) actuators are devices where the volume of a CP material is changed during a change of the state of oxidation or reduction of the polymer. The volume change is extracted as a geo-metrical change in uni- or bimorphs, where the active material may be combined with the passive supporting material. In bimorphs, which have an active layer supported on a passive Ælm, bending of the assembly occurs as the dimensional change is driven by electrochemistry.
