Original Abstract

Novel pressure sensor has been achieved utilizing carbon nanotubes (CNTs) arrays as the surface increase element in capacitive sensors. The CNTs were grown by plasma enhanced chemical vapor deposition (PECVD) by using iron as a catalyst in an atmospheric pressure microwave torch. The capacitive sensor takes advantage of CNTs dimensions to increase the surface. This means that the CNTs arrays in the capacitive sensors increase the surface of the electrodes, which are similar to a plate capacitor.
