  • P/F Sensors: their future and challenges

    Electronic Products - 07/07/2015

    While there are a number of printed/flexible (P/F) sensors available today, (see Electronic Products, “Printed/ Flexible Sensors Add New Options for Designers,” June 2015, pp. 26, 28), leading research universities and institutes worldwide are engaged in even more interesting, advanced developments.

    Among those research centers, and this is not an exhaustive list, are Imec Holst Centre (, Northeastern University’s Center for High-rate Nanomanufacturing (http://, University of California at San Diego’s Jacobs School of Engineering Center for Wearable Sensors ( wearablesensors/), the F. Seitz Materials Research Laboratory at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (http://, VTT Technical Research Centre Ltd ( in Espoo, Finland, Center for Personalized Health Monitoring at the University of Massachusetts, Amherst ( cphm/), and, in Germany, Fraunhofer EMFT, Munich ( en.html), Fraunhofer ENAS, Chemnitz (, and Fraunhofer IZM, Berlin ( Examples of the work of these researchers is given here; unfortunately, space and time do not permit discussion of the work being done at Arizona State University, Clemson University, Stanford University, UC Berkeley, and Western Michigan University
