Photonic Multilayer Sensors from Photo-Crosslinkable Polymer Films



original image

Colorimetric temperature sensors are prepared from photo-crosslinkable polymers by sequentially spin-coating and crosslinking alternating layers of poly(N-isopropylacrylamide) and poly(para-methyl styrene). Layer thicknesses and copolymer chemistries are chosen to provide robust colorimetric temperature sensors that cover nearly the full visible spectrum.
