Abstract

Skin mountable flexible pressure sensors are crucial for the next generation technologies. Capacitive pressure sensors bring several advantages and hence, they have been preferred over piezoelectric and piezoresistive alternatives. Flexible electrode and dielectric material are the fundamental components of the capacitive flexible pressure sensors. Hence, solution processable silver nanowires (AgNWs) are highly promising as electrode material or filler material in dielectric layer, owing to their superior inherent conductivity and flexibility. This article reviews recent progress on fabrication of flexible capacitive pressure sensors with AgNWs used as electrode and dielectric material. Performance of the sensors based on AgNWs is comprehensively discussed and emerging applications, as well as future outlook, are presented in detail.
