This paper presents a polymer strain sensor integrated with an NFC tag to detect strain semi-quantitatively. The strain sensor is fabricated using flexible and transparent polymer Polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) microchannel having conductive polymer poly (3,4-ethylenedioxythiophene) polystyrene sulfonate (PEDOT:PSS) as an active material. The sensor was tested with different bending conditions and it was found that the resistance increases with higher bending. A maximum of 3 order change in resistance was observed for ~100 bending. The sensor was finally tested using a custom-developed passive NFC tag having an LED connected in series with the strain sensor and powered from the reader via the NFC antenna in the tag.

Additional Information:Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the URSI Board, together with the GASS 2020 Local Organizing Committee decided to postpone the URSI 2020 General Assembly and Scientific Symposium by 1 year. However, all authors of accepted papers were offered the possibility to either withdrawn their paper or to publish their work in the GASS 2020 Proceedings. This work was supported in North West Centre for Advanced Manufacturing (NW CAM) project supported by the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme (H2020-Intereg-IVA5055), managed by the Special EU Programmes Body (SEUPB).
