Abstract

Dielectric elastomers and intrinsically conductive polymers are two examples of materials that are used as electroactive polymers, EAPs. The EAP actuators change their shape or size when actuated by an electric voltage. Nanocompounds potentially offer improved or superior material properties, which has given the motivation to develop stronger actuator materials by nanotechnological means.
