Abstract

Ultrasensitive flexible strain sensors were developed through the combination of shear alignment of a high concentration graphene oxide (GO) dispersion with fast and precise patterning of multiple rectangular features on a flexible substrate. Resistive changes in the reduced GO films were investigated under various uniaxial strain cycles ranging from 0.025 to 2%, controlled with a motorized anopositioning stage. The devices uniquely combine a very small detection limit (0.025%) and a high gauge factor with a rapid fabrication process conducive to batch production.
