  • Since rubbers have been used for long time due to their unique elasticity suitable for various applications such as tires, belts, mounts, and seals, and where the extremely harsh conditions are required, hence no other polymers can accomplish the role of rubbers. Recently, elastic function of rubbers has attracted a great attention for various applications including stretchable displays, dielectric elastomer actuators, sensors, and generator. This presentation will cover some applications of rubber elasticity in fabrication of bubble shaped actuator, liquid lens, disk-shape rubber generator, and stretchable electrodes.
