  • Elastic polymer that is both stiff and tough, resolves long-standing quandary

    Polymer science has made possible rubber tires, Teflon and Kevlar, plastic water bottles, nylon jackets among many other ubiquitous features of daily life. Elastic polymers, known as elastomers, can be stretched and released repeatedly and are used in applications such as gloves and heart valves, wh more

  • Let's do the twist

    The twisting and bending capabilities of the human muscle system enable a varied and dynamic range of motion, from walking and running to reaching and grasping. Replicating something as seemingly simple as waving a hand in a robot, however, requires a complex series of motors, pumps, actuators and a more

  • Smart glove for Industry 4.0

    Researchers at Saarland University have created an ultrathin flexible film that can act as a sensor for innovative technologies. Integrated within a glove, the new sensory film can communicate the current position of the wearer’s hand and fingers. By establishing a direct connection between the virt more

Dielectric elastomers

Dielectric elastomers Dielectric elastomers (DEs) are smart material systems which produce large strain s (up to 300%) and belong to the group of electroactive polymers (EAP). Based on their simple working principle dielectric elastomer actuato ... more
