Electric field-driven actuator materials are improved by an increase in permittivity and by a reduction in stiffness. A synergistic enhancement method is presented that is based on a macromolecular plasticizing filler molecule with a combination of both high dipole moment and compatibilizer moieties, synthesized to simultaneously ensure improvement of electromechanical properties and compatibility with the host matrix.
