PROJECT TITLE :
Soft Actuator Using Ionic Polymer–Metal Composite Composed of Gold Electrodes Deposited Using Vacuum Evaporation
We have developed a soft actuator using an ionic polymer–metal composite (IPMC) composed of gold electrodes deposited using vacuum evaporation. As compared with the traditional plating deposition, the vacuum evaporation both may be a straightforward fabrication method and is environmentally friendly. We observe how the gold electrodes adhere to the ionic polymer employing a cross-sectional scanning electron microscope and make sure the operating as a soft actuator by applying voltage. Although the displacement characteristic is not cherish that of the conventional IPMC, this work is worth it as a result of many researchers become in a position to easily enter into the analysis field of soppy actuators.
