Electrostatic actuator


An actuator that uses electrostatic force.

Since the electrostatic actuator has a simple structure and its output force per weight is increased as the size is reduced, many researches are ongoing to apply it to the actuator of micromachines. Application examples developed so far on an experimental basis include a wobble motor, a film electrostatic actuator, and so on.
