High-speed actuators! Actuators with a high-speed response under a high-frequency (more than 100 Hz) applied square-wave voltage of ±2 V have been developed with an electrode composed of millimeter-long single-walled carbon nanotubes and ionic liquids. Detailed studies reveal that the high-speed response (see figure) originates from the electric current generated by an oxidation/reduction (redox) reaction in addition to electric double-layer charging.
