Abstract: Electrically conductive fibers have been prepared by polymerization of pyrrole on surfaces of commercial polymer fibers. Thickness and morphology of the con-ducting thin film on the surface of the fibers were examined by scanning probe microscopy, indicating a strong dependence of the substrate's nature, in addition to the processing conditions. Electromechanical property was investigated by an electromechanical testing system, showing that a smooth and uniform coating and the matched mechanical properties will lead to a satisfied performance of conductive fiber sensors. The difference in the behavior of two types of composite fibers was investigated by scanning electron microscopy in situ observations.
