Transparent, Low-Power Pressure Sensor Matrix Based on Coplanar-Gate Graphene Transistors




A novel device architecture for preparing a transparent and low-voltage graphene pressure-sensor matrix on plastic and rubber substrates is demonstrated. The coplanar gate configuration of the graphene transistor enables a simplified procedure. The resulting devices exhibit excellent device performance, including a high transparency of ca. 80% in the visible range, a low operating voltage less than 2 V, a high pressure sensitivity of 0.12 kPa−1, and excellent mechanical durability over 2500 cycles.
