Abstract

In this paper, we propose a novel differential temperature sensor (DTS) device fabricated through inkjet material printer. The proposed sensor is consisted of two back-to-back printed meander patterns connected in series with capability to measure the temperature of flexible or curved surfaces with minimum error as compare to the simple resistor temperature detector (RTD). Moreover, the sensor can measure a bending curvature of a body. In the differential mode, if the sensor is bent on either sides, one meander pattern experience tension (increase resistance), while the opposite side experiences compression (decrease resistance). In result, the overall resistance of the device remains the same and only temperature changes the value of resistance. The proposed sensor is ideal for measuring temperature of flexible substrates.
