Graphene Nanoplatelet Composite 'Paper' as an Electrostatic Actuator.

Summary of "Graphene Nanoplatelet Composite 'Paper' as an Electrostatic Actuator."

Graphene nanoplatelets (GnP) can be made into a thin 'paper' through vacuum filtration of GnP suspension. Electrodes were fabricated from the compressed GnP paper and then coating the surface with epoxy. The electrostatic actuator was constructed from two parallel-aligned composite papers fixed at the anode and a cathode connected to the ground. The two composite papers will separate when applying voltage. The GnP paper was further treated by making the porous GnP paper; adding 10wt% Cellulose nanocrystals or C750 (GnP with diameter around 1μm), or coated with barium titanate particles. The output work could be improved up to over 200%.
