New devices for pressure, deformation and temperature sensing and monitoring

NANOMOL has developed and patented a new family of plastic electronic devices acting as pressure, strain, deformation and/or temperature sensors for a wide range of applications. They are composed of a nanocomposite organic material film in intimate contact with a polymeric substrate. The resulting devices are extremely sensitive, light, flexible and transparent, and their preparation is performed at atmospheric pressure employing low-cost techniques.

The devices offer great potential for applications in the field of organic sensors, electronic components, smart textiles, robotics, and remarkably, for the monitoring of biomedical parameters.
