Devices fabrication and measurements setup. (a) The fabrication process of NG-based strain sensor devices. (b) Optical images of the as-patterned devices with the zoom-in image of an individual device shown on the right. The arrow marks the bending direction. (c) Sketch map of the experimental setup for applying strain to devices; the inset shows an optical image of a real sample. (d) Illustration of a mica substrate under bending.

FIG. 3.

Piezoelectricity of the NG-based strain sensor devices. (a) I-V curve of a device with original sheet resistance of ∼5.5 M under different strains. (b) Resistance modulation of this device showing a GF ∼37. Both experimental data and line fit are shown. (c) Multi-cycle operation of the device. (d) The relationship of resistance changes and applied strains. The points and line show the experimental data and fitting, respectively.
