In the last decade the interest for “smart materials”, which respond to external stimuli by changing their shape or size, has increased. Besides the more classical approaches new materials including hydrogels, electro active-, shape memory- and conducting polymers as well as carbon nanotubes and ferroelectric liquid crystalline elastomers have been investigated.

Dielectric elastomer (DE) transducers technology represents the main topic of the Winterschool 2010.
