Paper Abstract

Shape memory alloys have the potential to become a material of great importance for miniature actuators that can be applied to the handling of sub-mm parts, biological engineering, and microsurgery. This paper reports on two shape memory microactuator systems under development in our laboratories, namely microgrippers and artificial muscle actuators.
