Transparent, Optical, Pressure-Sensitive Artificial Skin for Large-Area Stretchable Electronics

Authors


Abstract

Optical pressure sensors are highly responsive and are unaffected by surrounding parameters such as electronic noise, humidity, temperature, etc. A new type of optical pressure sensor is described that demonstrates the stretchability and transparency of a polydimethylsiloxane waveguide, while also serving as a substrate. The pressure sensors are both robust and easy to fabricate over a large area.
