Abstract

Ultralight graphene elastomer-based flexible sensors are developed to detect subtle vibrations within a broad frequency range. The same device can be employed as an accelerometer, tested within the experimental bandwidth of 20-300 Hz as well as a microphone, monitoring sound pressures from 300 to 20 000 Hz. The sensing element does not contain any metal parts, making them undetectable by external sources and can provide an acceleration sensitivity of 2.6 mV/g, which is higher than or comparable to those of rigid Si-based piezoresistive microelectromechanical systems (MEMS).
