J. Rausch, L. Salun, St. Grieheimer, M. Ibis & R. Werthschützky
In order to monitor or even control light-weight structures and predict their durability, strain sensors can be integrated into systems. Using printing technology, sensors can be implemented during the manufacturing process of the structure itself. Besides the characterization of functional inks capable for sensor applications, design, fabrication process, and test of screen- and inkjet printed piezoresistive strain sensors are focussed. In this paper we present the design and test of printed strain sensors, which can...
