It is found that the electrical resistance-length characteristic in an electroactive supercoiled polymer artificial muscle strongly depends on the temperature. This may come from the thermal expansion of coils in the artificial muscle, which increases the contact area of neighboring coils and results in a lower electrical resistance at a higher temperature. On the other hand, the electrical resistance-length characteristic collected during electrical driving seriously deviates from those collected at constant temperatures. Inhomogeneous heating during electrical driving seems to be a key for the deviation.
