Abstract

Dielectric elastomers (DEs) are being exploited for biological applications such as artificial blood pumps, biomi-metic grippers and biomimetic robots. Generally, polyacrylate and silicone rubber (SR)are the most widely use materials for fabricating DEsinterms of mixing with other polymers or compounding them with highly dielectric particles. Furthermore, pre-stretch offers an effective approach to increasing actuated strain and dielectric strength and eliminating pull-ininstability.
