Abstract
The primary focus of the proposed Phase II effort is to further understand the BiPolymeric™ phenomenon, thus enabling increased deployment capabilities, and the engineering of BiPolymeric™ solid-state actuators and mechanisms suitable for practical use. The proposed effort includes material development focused on enhancing the BiPolymeric™ effect through the incorporation of nano-reinforcements. The Phase II program also includes the design, fabrication and testing of prototype BiPolymeric™ devices to explore functional limits, characterize performance, and validate engineering models and design methods.
