[New breakthrough in artificial muscle intelligent material research] The reporter learned from Harbin Institute of Technology on the 1st that the team of Professor Leng Jinsong of the school and domestic and foreign scientific research partners have made a major breakthrough in the field of artificial muscle, one of the intelligent materials, and solved the capacitance of artificial muscle driving performance. The problem of dependence provides a new theoretical basis for the subsequent design of high-performance drivers with non-toxic, low driving voltage and high energy density. On January 29, related research results were published online in the academic journal Science, entitled “Unipolar Stroke, Electroosmotic Pump Carbon Nanotube Yarn Muscle”. This study found for the first time that through the strategy of polyelectrolyte functionalization, the “bipolar” drive of artificial muscle smart materials can be transformed into “unipolar” drive. At the same time, the abnormal phenomenon of artificial muscles with reduced capacitance and enhanced drive performance was found. Important discoveries and breakthroughs show broader prospects for the follow-up application of artificial muscles. The new artificial muscle has the characteristics of non-toxicity, high driving frequency, low driving voltage, large driving strain and high energy density. It can be deployed in space, bionic aircraft, deformable aircraft, flexible robot, wearable exoskeleton, medical robot, and flexible Electronics and other fields have huge application potential.
