Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention consists of an electroactive polymer (10, 10') which is stretched and held by a frame (22) so as to form a diaphragm. The diaphragm can be actuated in at least two directions upon voltage application and the electroactive polymer (10, 10') includes an acrylic layer. The device is operable in the low frequency range, from about 0.1 to 300 Hz. The diaphragm includes a weight member (42). The diaphragm and frame configurations may include a bow-type device, a bowtie-type device and others.
(FR)L'invention concerne un polymère électroactif (10, 10') étiré et maintenu par un bâti (22) de manière à former un diaphragme. Le diaphragme peut être actionné en au moins deux directions par application d'une tension et le polymère électroactif (10, 10') comprend une couche acrylique. Le dispositif peut travailler dans la plage des basses fréquences entre environ 0,1 et 300 Hz. Le diaphragme comprend un élément pondéral (42). Les configurations de diaphragme de bâti peuvent comprendre un dispositif de type en arc, un dispositif de type en papillon et d'autres.
