Dielectric Elastomers as EAPs: How to start experimenting with them

As can be seen from the large number of videos of home-made dielectric elastomer actuators (DEAs) on YouTube, getting started making DEAs is straightforward and can be done at low cost. This chapter provides information on making two types of basic dielectric elastomer actuators, as well as detailed information on using DE for energy harvesting (converting mechanical energy into electrical energy).
