Microfluidics-Based Pressure Sensor Takes Loads, Bends

June 25, 2016

Researchers from the National University of Singapore have devised a thin and flexible pressure sensor that not only measures compression loads from a very wide range (2 kPa to 400 kPa) but can also distinguish bending or stretching loads. [more...]
