Paper Abstract

This paper presents a new way to design and fabricate ionic polymer actuators showing a linear movement in air. This is done by use of an original shaping during the polymerization step. The possible solutions for linear actuation were tested with a simulation technique that has been designed on purpose, which helped us to choose the best. By means of very unusual fabrication techniques that were required for that, actuators were made following this principle and their performances were measured.
