DEtune - Towards a new generation of soft and conformable acoustic devices based on electroactive polymers

Goal: The DEtune project is an H2020 Marie Skłodowska-Curie individual fellowship granted to dr. Giacomo Moretti and the University of Saarland. The project explores loudspeakers made of dielectric elastomer (DE)diaphragms, which embed the acoustic interface (vibrating membrane) and the actuator into a single electroactive membrane. The research teams aims at creating base knowledge in the field of DE vibrations and electro-elasto-acoustic interactions, as well as developing soft loudspeakers demonstrators.
