Hyper-elastic Pressure Sensors - Temperature Dependence of Piezoresistivity of Polyisoprene – Nanostructured Carbon Composite

Juris Zavickis, Maris Knite, Artis Linarts, Raimonds Orlovs

Abstract

Our previous efforts revealed polyisoprene-nanostructured carbon composite as prospective sensitive material for elaboration of entirely hyper-elastic piezoresistive pressure sensor element. In this article we investigate the temperature dependence on initial electrical resistivity as well as piezoresistive properties of such material and self-elaborated hyper-elastic pressure sensing element. Certain conclusions about the effect of temperature on electroconductive structure and piezoresistivity are made.
