Conducting polymer based linear actuators are intensively studied in the past years and high strain values up to 10-20% were achieved depending on polymerisation conditions and used actuation electrolyte. The goal of proposed mission is to obtain linear fibre-like actuators for robotics devices, which can operate in air and can be bundled together like natural muscles. To obtain such functional devices more studies needs to be done on the actuator material itself and the interaction with the underlying membrane or supporting fibre. In this study we want to investigate chitosan-composites as novel membrane material in terms of ion conductivity in comparison to commercially available PVdF membranes. The conducting polymer will be deposited on actuators membrane and the ion flux on the interface between conducting polymer and the ion-conductive membranes will be studied with the modified SICM (Scanning Ion Conductance Microscopy) at the Host institute. Linear actuation of the trilayer samples will be analysed with the Dynamical Muscle Analyzer (Scientific Inc.).
