Research output: Patent

Abstract

Disclosed herein is a composite comprising a conductive elastomer and an isolating elastomer. When a current is passed through the conductive elastomer, its tensile modulus decreases as the elastomer heats from internal Joule heating, changing the rigidity of the composite. When the current is no longer present, the elastomer cools and the rigidity of the composite returns to its original state.
