Fault-Tolerant Dielectric Elastomer Actuators using Single-Walled Carbon Nanotube Electrodes


Certain dielectric elastomers such as the 3M VHB 4910 acrylic adhesive films have exhibited electrically induced strains as high as 380 % in area expansion. The calculated maximum specific energy density of 3.4 J g and maximum stress of 8 MPa are attractive for a wide range of applications including robotics, prosthetic devices, medical implants, pumps, and… (More)
