Summer School in micro mechanical system design & manufacture


Micromechanical components play an increasing role in micro systems. The use of metals, polymers and ceramics for miniature components requires new product development methods as well as manufacturing technologies, where product dimensions may range from micrometre to millimetre.

Polymer actuator could be artificial muscle

French scientists have designed an electronic conducting polymer actuator that can extend and contract linearly rather than bending. The fibres could eventually be used to develop artificial muscles.
