The Coming of Age of Dielectric Elastomer Transducers

Dielectric Elastomer Actuators (DEAs) are stretchable transducers consisting of a thin elastomer membrane between two compliant electrodes. Fourteen years after its birth, the field of DEAs has made giant bounds forward, with applications emerging in many fields and at size scales from μm to km. DEAs can be used as actuators generating area strains of more than 200%, but also for energy harvesting, as strain sensors, switches and as lightweight structural elements. The large strains and intrinsic softness of these elastomeric actuators allow new approaches to actuation, such as bio-inspired systems. The first commercial DEA devices are now on the market.
