A novel nanoporous carbon/electrolyte hybrid material for actuation is presented. The nanoporous carbon matrix provides a 3D network that combines mechanical strength, light weight, and low cost with an extremely high surface area. The hybrid material exhibits appreciable strength and can be loaded in compression. This electrically tunable actuator reaches strain amplitudes and mass-specific work density values that are comparable or even superior to many conventional actuation materials.
