Carbon nanotubes offer attractive possibilities for developing new sensors because of superior mechanical and electrical properties. So far most studies relate to the mechanical deformation and to the change of nano-scale electrical properties. We present an attempt to utilize multi wall carbon nanotubes for developing a new flexible composite for(More)
Riga Technical University, Institute of Technical Physics, Azenes Str. 14-322, LV-1007 Riga, Latvia E-mail: juriszavickis@inbox.lv In our previous research, the polyisoprene-nanostructured carbon composite (PNCC) has been approved as a promising material to be used as a low-pressure sensor. The main advantage of PNCC is its hyperelastic flexibility as(More)
The major problem of conventional rigid sensor materials is difficulty to integer them into soft flexible structures. Piezoresistive polyisoprene/nanostructured carbon composite appears as promising materials for such application. Previous research approved high structure carbon black and carbon nanotube filled composites as finger pressure sensitive(More)
