B2.2 - Electrode Design for Capacitive Sensors

H. Zangl
This paper presents a fast method for the design of electrode topologies of capacitive sensors with the aim to provide a good signal to noise ratio. Frequently, the initial electrode design for capacitive sensors is chosen according to the knowledge of an expert and optimization is done in time consuming experiments. An alternative approach is given by model based optimization using field computation software and standard optimization techniques. However, this is still a complex task...
