Abstract

In this study, we successfully reduced the parasitic capacitance of PDMS-based flexible tactile sensors by decreasing the dielectric constant of PDMS. UV exposure changes Si-CH3 bonds in PDMS to Si-O, which leads to the low dielectric constant. This simple but effective method can be readily applicable to improve signal-To-noise ratio of PDMS-based flexible sensors.
