Description
Summary:In this work we present the development of a low-cost humidity and temperature sensing platform on paper by inkjet printing, using a commercial AgNPs conductive ink. The humidity sensing module was capable of measuring relative humidity in the range of 0⁻90%rH, exhibiting linear response with minimal memory effect when returning to 0%rH baseline signal while the temperature sensor performed linearly as well in the range of 25⁻75°C. Process repeatability has been verified by electrical and optical characterization. Mechanical bending results highlight the platform’s capability to serve as an easy to install, flexible multi-parametric sensing platform.
