Polymer–carbon nanotube conductive nanocomposites for sensing

J.-F. Feller, M. Castro and B. Kumar,     University of South Brittany (UBS) France

Abstract:

In this chapter, recent studies on carbon nanotube conductive polymer nanocomposites (CPC) for sensing are presented. Starting from basic concepts related to CPC transducers, such as percolation, conduction mechanisms and sensing principles, this chapter successively addresses synthesis, fabrication, characterization and structure/sensing properties of these advanced materials issues. Special attention is given to conductive pathways that structure and provide an understanding of sensing behaviour. Finally, examples are given for the main fields of applications, i.e. temperature, strain, ...
