After obtaining a way to fabricate IPMC actuator with palladium electrodes, the deformation of IPMC actuator behavior is evaluated under various solvents, various temperatures, and various frequencies of input voltages. By using the non-electrolytic plating method to obtain IPMC actuator, it is found that as the increase of the ionic radius the bending response of IPMC actuator becomes predominant from the experimental observation. When the electric field across its cross section is unloaded, IPMC actuator shows a large back relaxation under high temperature. In the experiment of the frequency response of the input voltage, IPMC actuator shows a good response to various frequencies from 0.1 to 6.0 Hz in which the resonant peak is observed at 5.5 Hz.
