The fabrication of a mechanically flexible, piezoelectric nanocomposite material for strain sensing applications is reported. Nanocomposite material consisting of zinc oxide (ZnO) nanostructures embedded in a stable matrix of paper (cellulose fibers) is prepared by a solvothermal method. The applicability of this material as a strain sensor is demonstrated(More)
Composite coatings have been developed that reveal strains in underlying structural elements through noncontact optical measurement. Dilute individualized single-walled carbon nanotubes are embedded in a polymeric host and applied to form a thin coating. Strain in the substrate is transmitted through the polymer to the nanotubes, causing systematic and(More)
