dc.description.abstract Electroactive thin-film polymers are candidate sensors and actuators materials. They are also finding significant potential in muscle mechanisms and microelectromechanical systems (MEMS). In these applications, polymer thin films of thickness varying between 20 and 300 micrometers are utilized. The authors are currently studying the potential use of platewave dispersion curve measurements as an effective gauging tool for electroactive thin-film polymers en_US
