Sensors

At the beginning of a Printed Sensor there is the following question:

 

WHAT DO WE WANT TO PRINT WHERE AND HOW?

Conductive material or insulating?

 

Metal based or polymer electronics?

 

Organic or Inorganic?

 

Ink or paste?

 

 

 

Writing or using masks?

 

Contact-free or touching?

 

Single or mass production?

 

Edge sharpness and/or homogeneous layer thickness?

 

Plain or multicoloured?

 

Multilayer printing or laminated hybrid construction?

 

Planar, symmetrical or 3D free-form?

 

Flexible, elastic or rigid?

 

Foil material, textile, glass, metal, ceramic or something else?
