Material and structure sensors#

This topic includes methods, techniques and arrangements for material and structure sensors. The sensors for mechanical strain, stress and overload (detection of cracks) are based on silicon technologies. Nano composite-based overload sensors as well as humidity sensors are using thin layers of organic materials with embedded nano particles enabling the integration into fiber-reinforced composites. Another approach are sensors based on carbon nanotubes.
