Title: (EN) Electrically and/or thermally actuated device
Abstract: front page image
(EN)

An electrically, thermally, or electrically and thermally actuated device is disclosed herein. The device includes a substrate, a first electrode established on the substrate, an active region established on the electrode, and a second electrode established on the active region. A pattern is defined in at least one of the substrate, the first electrode, the second electrode, or the active region. At least one of grain boundaries are formed within, or surface asperities are formed on, at least one of the electrodes or the active region. The pattern controls the at least one of the grain boundaries or surface asperities.
