Paper Abstract

This paper describes the use of free-standing electrically conductive ultra-low modulus materials that withstand elongations up to 1000% as sensors for the measurement of large strains. NanoSonic has developed novel, high performance, multifunctional polymers for use in self-assembly processing that result in durable free-standing conductive films - with both controlled nominal conductivity and Young's modulus. Such films exhibit a change in electrical conductivity as a function of tensile strain; whereby the magnitude of the change is controlled via chemical processing.
