A molecular-regulation strategy towards low-voltage driven, multi degree of freedom IPMC catheters

Author affiliations

Abstract

A multi degree of freedom ionic polymer–metal composite (IPMC) active catheter with controllable bending ability (from micrometer to millimeter level) under a low voltage (∼1.0 V) was developed. And its actuation properties were enhanced effectively through a molecular-regulation strategy.
