An introduction to printed flexible sensors

Dr Guillaume Chansin
Progress in printed electronics now enables more sensors to be fully printed. Since sensors have a much simpler structure than displays or logic circuits, the manufacturing learning curve is less steep compared to many other printed electronics applications. In most cases, these new printed sensors can be made on plastic substrates, offering the advantages of mechanical flexibility, thinness and light weight. In this short presentation, we explain the evolution of the technology and show some of the latest examples of printed sensors.
