The cover image presents vertically aligned carbon nano tubes (CNTs) with ultrahigh volume fraction. The CNTs reported by L. Wardle, Q. M. Zhang, and coworkers on page 3266 create unique opportunities for ionic polymer actuators with a morphology approaching the optimal nanostructure: the vertical alignment of CNT electrodes greatly facilitates the ion transport in the actuators, and the high elastic anisotropy of the composite layers, arising from the high modulus of CNTs, enhances actuation strain.
