Welcome to PULSE-COM website!
PULSE-COM project, or Photo-Piezo-ActUators based on Light SEnsitive COMposite project, aims to explore technological breakthroughs developing and integrating a new class of Photo-Piezo-Actuators to open a radical new future technology.
Our vision is based on the use of low cost photo-mobile polymer (PMP) films and a lead-free piezo-composite (PZL) to target their use in innovative new fields never before considered. Starting from phenomenological and modelling aspects of the composite materials, the consortium will fabricate and experimentally characterize Photo-Piezo-Actuators (PMP-PZL) proof of concept devices.
This study can open a new window on the future development of light-driven nanomotors and their potential applications in different areas such as biomedical, environmental and nanoengineering fields.
