Prospective Elasto-Plastic Pressure Sensors : All-Elasto-Plastic Polyisoprene/Nanostructured Carbon Pressure Sensing Element

By Māris Knite, Juris Zavickis, Gatis Podiņš, Raimonds Orlovs and Kaspars Ozols


Our further achievements in the design, processing and studies of physical properties of elastomer – nano-structured carbon composites as prospective compressive strain sensor materials for robotic tactile elements as well as for other automatic systems are presented. Composites made of polyisoprene matrix and high-structure carbon nanoparticle filler have been designed and manufactured to develop polymer nano-composites for flexible, entirely polymeric pressure sensing elements. Electrical resistance of the composites as a function of mechanical strain and pressure is studied. SEM pictures of cross-section surface of sensing elements are analyzed
