Abstract
In this paper, we have developed electrochemical and electromechanical kinetic model of a bucky-gel actuator which is composed of an ionic liquid (IL) gel electrolyte layer sandwiched by electrode layers based on single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWNTs) and ILs. The electrochemical model can be applied to the electromechanical effect only due to the electric double-layer (DL) charging, or due to both the DL charging and redox reaction of SWNTs. The model was compared with the experimental results of the bucky-gel actuators.
