Shape memory ceramic actuators

Year 2013
Project team Chris Schuh with Alan Lai

A new class of materials

Shape memory materials are solid state actuators that can produce both large forces and displacements, making them ideal materials for actuation applications in, e.g., robotics, electronics and haptics. The project is developing a new class of actuator materials. (Renewal from Fall 2013 grant round)
