Artificial muscles

I’m looking for materials that I can use to experiment with building artificial muscles. I understand that polymers can be used for this purpose. I’m looking to build very small actuators. Thanks.

Hello.

Unfortunately, we do not have any specific suggestions for what materials to use for something like that, or where to look for those kinds of materials. Your best bet is probably to try researching academic articles related to what you are interested in and trying to contact their authors.
