Abstract

original image

Flüssige Filme: Ionische Flüssigkeiten, in denen einwandige Kohlenstoffnanoröhren dispergiert sind (Bucky-Gele), ermöglichten den ersten schichtweisen Aufbau eines vollständig aus Kunststoff bestehenden Aktuators. Dieser Aktuator hat eine einfache Dreischicht-Konfiguration aus weichen Elektroden und Elektrolytschichten (siehe Bild) und kann an Luft bei niedrigen Spannungen betrieben werden.
