Abstract

A RGO/CNT hybrid electrode of porous structure is prepared through a surfactant-free solution method to construct a bimorph ionic actuator, showing wide frequency range responsive and highly repeatable (over a million times) and stable bending actuation performance. © 2012 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co.
