Ultrafast Humidity Sensor Device for Speech Analysis (Printed Electronics USA 2014)

Dr Ryan Giedd, Director, Device Engineering & Product Development

Nov 19, 2014.

Presentation Summary

• We have designed and manufactured over 1,200 printed electronic devices for fast humidity and temperature sensing applications.
• These discrete sensors have fully integrated temperature and humidity sensing surfaces and feature 6 layers of flexible organic and carbonaceous materials.
• Since the active surface is only 30-40 nanometers thick, the sensor responds to a humidity change faster than any sensor we have seen in the literature.
• In addition, the sensor is very sensitive, so it can is capable of reading the fluctuations in humidity during speech.
• A live demonstration will be included in the presentation.
