FIG. 1.

(Color online) From left to right: (a) actuator plane; (b) switching plane; (c) two actuator planes and one switching plane were assembled to make the motor; (d) each switch was configured in a voltage divider and coupled to a DEA −90° out of phase (+degrees being in the direction of rotation).
