Multifield-Active Materials

February 6, 2019

We are developing composites structures that are responsive to both electric and magnetic fields, as shown in the bifold prototype below comprised of magneto-active elastomer (MAE), dielectric elastomer (DE) and silicone rubber (PDMS). These composites will be able to fold and unfold along different fold lines for each mode of actuation as predicted below by FEA.
