Abstract: Flexible and sensitive sensors that can detect external stimuli such as pressure, temperature, and strain are essential components for applications in health diagnosis and artificial intelligence. Multifunctional sensors with the capabilities of sensing pressure and temperature simultaneously are highly desirable for health monitoring. Here, we have successfully fabricated a flexible and simply structured bimodal sensor based on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) derived porous carbon (PC) and polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) composite. Attributed to the porous structure of PC/PDMS composite, the fabricated sensor exhibits high sensitivity (15.63 kPa-1), fast response time (<65 ms), and high durability (∼2000 cycles) for pressure sensing. Additionally, its application in detecting human motions such as subtle wrist pulses in real time has been demonstrated. Furthermore, the as-prepared device based on the PC/PDMS composite exhibits a good sensitivity (>0.11 °C-1) and fast response time (∼100 ms), indicating its potential application in sensing temperature. All of these capabilities indicate its great potential in the applications of health monitoring and artificial skin for artificial intelligence system.
