FIG. 3.

The displacement profiles on a HYBAS as a function of for ac driving voltage at: (a) (electric field of for single crystal and for EAP), (b) (electric field of for single crystal and for EAP), and (c) (electric field of for single crystal and for EAP), respectively. The dots are the measured results. The solid lines are the modeling results from the series equations in Sec. III based on the calculated clamp ratio .
