Abstract: This paper presents the controlled swelling of a novel active material for microsystems: a photopatternable electroactive polymer gel. It is very promising as an actuator material in biomedical and microfluidic applications as it shows a volume swelling of over 50% upon application of very modest voltages in a liquid environment. We present the synthesis of the novel material, the development of a MEMS compatible fabrication process and the measurements on fabricated test structures.
