Paper Abstract

Thin metal foil sensors for corrosion monitoring are being developed for applications under paints, sealants and in lap joints. These sensors are two electrode electrochemical devices. A fundamental consideration for these sensors is that they reflect the corrosion activity of the structure to be monitored. To this end, fine milling, chemical etching and laser micromachining are used to fabricate the sensors from the same material as the structure of interest. Details of the fabrication, characterisation and micro-circuit instrumentation of the sensors will be presented.
