Pertinent Example Measurements
Now that the necessary theory of rubber-elasticty and the measurement method along with the design of the measurement setup was laid out, a few example measurements are shown in the following chapter. In particular the Young’s Modulus of polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) with different degree of cross-linking and its dependence on the stretching velocity is determined with the methods explained in Section 2. The second part focusses on the electromechanical characterization of stretchable electrode films on PDMS.
