Presentation Abstract

Di-electric electro-active polymers have potential applications as actuators and sensors. Their core characteristic is the ability to dynamically change their physical shape as a function of an electric stimulus. In this experiment, the electrical resistance of these materials are measured while the material is been subjected to a series of stress-relaxation cycles. The relation between the electrical resistance and the stress-relaxation cycles are determined and analyzed.
