Abstract

We investigate ion transport and storage of ionic liquids in ionic polymer conductor network composite electroactive devices. Specifically, we show that by combining the time domain electric and electromechanical responses, one can gain quantitative information on transport behavior of the two mobile ions in ionic liquids (i.e., cation and anion) in these electroactive devices. By employing a two carrier model, the total excess ions stored and strains generated by the cations and anions, and their transport times in the nanocomposites can be determined, which all depend critically on the morphologies of the conductor network nanocomposites.
