    Abstract

    High performances of micromachined unimorph actuators (polymer micro-machined actuator or PMAT) based on the electrostrictive poly(vinylidede fluoride-trifluoroethylene) (P(VDF-TrFE)) copolymer is developed. The PMAT exhibits a very high stroke level with high load capability, broad frequency range (>100kHz), and high displacement sensitivity. In addition, the simulated results, based on the properties of the materials and the structure of the device, are consisting with the experimental observation.
