Paper Abstract

A prototype carbon nanotube actuator operated with low voltage is studied to achieve a function to tilt a mirror angle. The process to fabricate the actuator is introduced and the moving characteristics are measured. The response time of this actuator should be improved to be much faster, but the result indicates a potential of the actuator to control the tilt mirror angle.
