Conducting Polymers as Redox Electroactive Materials for Soft Microelectromechanical Systems

This chapter focuses on conducting polymers as redox electroactive materials for the development of soft actuators and microactuators. General properties and working principles are first presented as well as the different configurations for operation in liquid electrolyte and air operation. An overview of past, recent and present works on the synthesis, fabrication and integration approaches of soft microactuators based on conducting polymers is finally presented, highlighting the future challenges for the development of fully integrated soft microelectromechanical systems.
