Abstract

We present an actuator, consisting of a bilayer of graphene and graphene oxide, which allows us to exert forces in micromechanical systems that are at least 50 times higher than reported for other actuators of comparable size. The durability of such a device and stability during many cycles are demonstrated, and the related mechanism is discussed in detail.
