dc.description.abstract Ionic Polymer Metal Composite (IPMC) is an Electo-Active Polymer (EAP) that is well-known for its actuation and sensing behavior. It has been shown that in charge sensing mode an IPMC generates one order of magnitude larger current as compared to piezoelectric materials. However the voltage generated is on the order of couple millivolts, making it less attractive as a sensor and energy harvester. Previous numerical work by the author, demonstrated that increasing the ionic concentration of the ionomer will increase the current and voltage generated by an IPMC. Conversely, the previous study showed that the electrode composition and architecture had minimal effects. This paper will present an experimental investigation of the effect of changing the composition of the ionomer, the membrane thickness, and electrode architecture on the sensing and energy harvesting behavior. The response of all IPMC transducers is analyzed and compared to numerical simulations. en_US
