Abstract

With its unprecedented properties over conventional rigid platforms, flexible electronics have been a significant research topic in the last decade, offering a broad range of applications from bendable display, flexible solar-energy systems, to soft implantable-devices for health monitoring. Flexible electronics for harsh and hazardous environments have also been extensively investigated. In particular, devices with stretchability and bend-ability as well as tolerance to extreme and toxic operating conditions are imperative. This work presents silicon carbide grown on silicon and then transferred onto polyimide substrate as a new platform for flexible sensors for hostile environments. Combining the excellent electrical properties of SiC and high temperature tolerance of polyimide, we demonstrated for the first time a flexible SiC sensors that can work above 400 °C. This new sensing platform opens exciting opportunities toward flexible sensing applications in hazardous environments.
