Abstract

Strain-sensitive, conductive nanocomposite elastomer is an emerging MEMS material. Here, we present comprehensive characterization of contact resistance between nanocomposite elastomers and metal electrodes for different contact areas, applied forces, and contact metals. Further, we report new findings regarding the strain dependence of bulk resistance. These lead to important guidelines for designing generic elastomeric force-sensing devices.
