In order to get an understanding of the general characteristics of Carbon Nanotube (CNT) based actuators, the system response of the actuator was analyzed. Special techniques were developed in order to generate a reproducible characteristic measure for the material: the R-Curve. On top, the dynamic response of the system was evaluated in different states of the actuator. A model was generated to capture the general behavior of the system. At last an actuator incorporating solid electrolyte was built and tested, showing similar characteristics as the actuator in aqueous electrolyte.
