3d Printed And In-Situ Poled Flexible Piezoelectric Pressure Sensor
WARF: P200250US01

Inventors: Xudong Wang, Jun Li

The Invention
A piezoelectric artificial artery can be 3D printed to provide the real-time precise sensing of blood pressure and vessel motion patterns enabling early detection of partial occlusions. An electric-field assisted 3D printing method allows for rapid printing and simultaneously poled complex ferroelectric structures with high fidelity and good piezoelectric performance. The print material consists of ferroelectric potassium sodium niobite (KNN) particles embedded within a ferroelectric polyvinylidene fluoride (PVDF) polymer matrix.
