This paper describes a cantilevered actuator driven by magnetostriction in a low magnetic field. The dimensions of the two-layer actuator were 1 mm × 5 mm, and amorphous FeSiB was used as the positive magnetostrictive material. The theoretical formulas for the amount of displacement and force of the actuator were obtained. In the experiment, a nonmagnetic polyimide film material and a negative magnetostrictive Ni film material were used as the substrates. The change in the characteristics of the actuator caused by changing the substrate was examined with theoretical formulas and experiments. It is shown that the actuator with Ni as the substrate was designed to obtain the largest displacement and the largest force.
