Characterization of Polypyrrole/Gold Bilayers for Micro-valve Design

Polypyrrole/gold bilayers are being developed as micro-actuators for several applications. The goal of this thesis was to use these bilayers in a micro-valve to control female urinary incontinence. Several substrate materials and designs were investigated, with noteworthy findings, including the development of a bulk micromachining method for titanium based on wet etching. Despite past research on polypyrrole/gold bilayers, the relationships between design parameters and performance were unknown…
