Abstract: Textile strain sensors were made from polypyrrole-coated stretchable fabrics by a method of screen printing with chemical vapor deposition. The effect of polymerization temperature on the sensing performances was studied. It was found that polymerization at low temperature significantly improved the electrical conductivity, strain sensitivity and environmental stability of the fabric sensors. The conductive fabrics were characterized using X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetry, contact angle measurements, particle size analysis, scanning electron microscopy and scanning probe microscopy. Powders of pure polypyrrole prepared by the same fabrication method were characterized for a better understanding of the polypyrrole coating.
