The feasibility of wearable, soft artificial muscles made by weaving and knitting, with tunable force and strain, is demonstrated by combining one of humankind’s oldest technologies, textile processing, with electroactive polymers.
Flexible Solid Polymer Electrolytes Based on Nitrile Butadiene Rubber/Poly(ethylene oxide) Interpenetrating Polymer Networks Containing Either LiTFSI or EMITFSI
The synthesis and characterization of flexible solid polymer electrolytes (SPEs) based on interpenetrating polymer networks (IPNs) are discussed. IPNs were prepared from nitrile butadiene rubber…

Smart textiles have been around for some decades. Even if interactivity is central to most definitions, the emphasis so far has been on the stimuli/input side, comparatively little has been reported…
Ionic electroactive polymer artificial muscles in space applications
The results substantiate that the IEAP materials are tolerant to long-term freezing and vacuum environments as well as ionizing Gamma-, X-ray, and UV radiation at the levels corresponding to low Earth orbit (LEO) conditions.
