Design, Fabrication, and Characterization of Cooperative Dielectric Elastomer Micro-Actuator/-Sensor Systems

  • Type of position: PhD Student
  • Short descriptive title: Design, Fabrication, and Characterization of Cooperative Dielectric Elastomer Micro-Actuator/-Sensor Systems
  • Short description of the position: The doctoral position is within the DFG funded project "DECMAS phase 2 – Dielectric Elastomer Membranes for Cooperative Micro-Actuator/Sensor Concepts", which is part of the priority programme "KOMMMA – Cooperative Multistage Multistable Microactuator Systems". The specific goals of the PhD position are the investigation of new miniaturization and system integration concepts for fully polymeric and multi-functional microactuator/-sensor systems based on dielectric elastomers, as well as the fabrication and electromechanical characterization of the developed micro-scale devices.

Modeling, Control, and Self-Sensing of Cooperative Dielectric Elastomer Micro-Actuator/-Sensor Systems

  • Type of position: PhD Student
  • Short descriptive title: Modeling, Control, and Self-Sensing of Cooperative Dielectric Elastomer Micro-Actuator/-Sensor Systems
  • Short description of the position: The doctoral position is within the DFG funded project "DECMAS phase 2 – Dielectric Elastomer Membranes for Cooperative Micro-Actuator/Sensor Concepts", which is part of the priority programme "KOMMMA – Cooperative Multistage Multistable Microactuator Systems". The specific goals of the PhD position are the development of physics-based mathematical models to describe and simulate the behavior of cooperative arrays of micro-scale dielectric elastomer actuators, the design of cooperative control algorithms which allow the micro-array to perform complex global actuation tasks in a decentralized fashion, and the design of distributed estimation methods to allow sensorless implementation of feedback controllers.
