Overview: 

A flexible temperature sensor (and by extension a sensor array] utilizing a thin film conducting polymer (sensing element] on a flexible polymeric substrate having a high and tunable sensitivity.

Key Features: 

  • Flexible temperature sensor (and by extension a sensor array).
  • A thin film conducting polymer (sensing element) on a flexible polymeric substrate.
  • Tunability - sensitivity can be tuned over a wide range which is not be possible with metallic sensing elements.
  • Cost - Lower (materials and processing).
  • It can be connected to the Information Technology (IT) grid.

Applications: 

  • As a flexible, high sensitivity temperature sensor.
  • Can be used as a temperature array on non-planar surfaces to map temperature profiles.
  • Can be integrated with other devices.
