Characterization of the Electromechanical Properties of Ionomeric Polymer-Metal Composite (IPMC)

Abstract

IPMC is an electroactive polymer (EAP) that has been the subject of research and development since 1992. The advantages of IPMC in requiring low activation voltage and the induced large bending strain led to its consideration for various potential applications. However, before the benefits of IPMC can be effectively exploited for practical use, the… (More)
