Printed resistive sensors for physical quantities

M. prudenziati,     University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy

Abstract:

This chapter reviews commonly used and state-of-the-art versions of resistive sensors for physical quantities such as temperature, strain, radiant energy and magnetic field, relying on printed films. An outline is given for the properties of the films on which these sensors operate with a mention of their structure and applications.
