  • Priya Gupta, Megha Gupta, Ranjeet Kumar Gupta

Abstract

Abstract:- Polymers are now being widely tested and employed in sensor fabrication. Particularly, they can be used for flexible electronics, sensitive skin, stress/strain measurements, controlling chemical reaction, identifying gases, etc. The list of applications is long, though developments are undergoing to make their usage reliable for various areas. In this article various types of sensors and relevant applications are reviewed. Further to it, the application of strain sensors is elaborated with its technique, application and limitations discussed in detail. Strain sensors help enumerate structural changes, by undergoing changes in their electrical properties under mechanical deformations. Potential use of this readings is their application in flexible electric and electronic devices that take readings from human body and motion detection systems for computer entertainment programs where motion of human body works as an input to a system. Moreover, strain sensors are widely used beyond that: manufacturing, machinery, airplanes, aerospace and medicine are some examples of application of them. This paper discusses the concept, trend and applications of polymer-based flexible sensors. Keywords:- Composite; Thermoplastic; Flexible sensor; Strain.
