Title: Electrochemical and morphological studies of ionic polymer metal composites as stress sensors

Abstract

Ionic polymer metal composites (IPMCs) are the backbone of a wide range of ionic devices. IPMC mechanoelectric sensors are advanced nanostructured transducers capable of converting mechanical strain into easily detectable electric signal. Such attribute is realized by ion mobilization in and through IPMC nanostructure. In this study we have investigated electrochemical and morphological characteristics of IPMCs by varying the morphology of their metal composite component (conductive network composite (CNC)). We have demonstrated the dependence of electrochemical properties on CNC nanostructure as well as mechanoelectrical performance of IPMC sensors as a function of CNC morphology. Lastly, it is shown that the morphology of CNC can be used as a means to improve sensitivity of IPMC sensors by 3–4 folds.
