Actuation Behavior of CP Actuator Based on Polypyrrole and PVDF

Abstract:

Article Preview

Conducting polymer (CP) actuators undergo volumetric changes due to the movement of dopant ions into the film during the electrical oxidation process. In this work, PPy/SPE/PPy electroactive tri-layer actuator was prepared by the electrochemical polymerization of pyrrole and the actuation characteristics were studied. An all-solid actuator, consisting of two polypyrrole (PPy) films and a solid polymer electrolyte (SPE) based on poly(vinylidene fluoride) (PVDF), clearly showed a reversible displacement in an atmosphere when a voltage was applied.
