Methacrylate based hard-soft-hard triblock copolymers show periodically well-organized morphologies, giving excellent actuation performances at relatively lower electric fields due to their polar methacrylate groups, lower modulus, and microstructures, which are superior to conventional SEBS/oil systems. As presented by Kie Yong Cho, Seung Sang Hwang, Ho Gyu Yoon, and Kyung-Youl Baek on page 1924, these highperformance soft actuator materials may find applications as artificial skin.
