EMBEDDED SENSOR FABRICATION

 

Mycrojet has been used to fabricate direct write sensors on metal parts. Temperature, strain, proximity, and continuity sensors are printed directly onto the part, or sensors are printed onto a flexible polymer that is attached to the part. Electrical measurements show conductive traces with resistances of a few ohms/cm. Various patterns are printed to form sensors. A data acquisition system is used to take resistance measurements as a function of time, measuring and recording the sensor response.
