Abstract:Since the rapid growth of smart technology for the last several years, the trend of technology is focused on smarter, and more human wearable devices. Following this trend, the development of a flexible, stretchable, very accurate, and temperature sensitive sensor is attracting much attention. Temperature sensitive sensors are not only limited in a certain area, but also are widely used in many different fields such as aerospace, nuclear, mechanical, chemical, medical, food and agriculture industries [1]. Recently, in accordance with the advances in materials for stretchable electronics, researchers have pioneered new fields of applications, especially in systems involving intimate integration with the human skin [2]. For this research, I have worked with two different types of material to build high thermal coefficient resistant (TCR) sensors for precisely and continuously monitoring temperature change of human skin; gold-doped silicon and a carbon nanotube (CNT)/PDMS mixture.
