Abstract
In an effort to develop very inexpensive electroactive polymers, P(VDF-CTFE) and its blends with P(VDF-TrFE) copolymer are studied and reported. A high electrostrictive strain of 5% was observed in the treated P(VDF-CTFE) and its blends with blend ratio 10/90 wt% [P(VDF-TrFE)/P(VDF-CTFE)]. Combined with Young’s modulus, dielectric constant, and the piezoelectric constant, the electromechanical coupling factor and energy density of this blend system are evaluated and compared with irradiated P(VDF-TrFE) and terpolymer P(VDF-TrFE-CTFE).
