In this work, graphite nanobelts-based films as a promising material for applications in flexible blood pulse sensors with low power consumption are studied. A modified Langmuir Blodgett method used here for the sensor fabrication, is a reliable, simple and scalable technique allowing for controlled deposition of conducting films with desired electrical properties. The nanobelts, deposited over oxidized silicon or onto flexible polydimethylsiloxane substrates, were morphologically and electrically characterized. The response of the sensors to blood pulses measured on wrists and necks of two different persons (a male and a female) and the ways of the sensor response optimization are discussed.
Key words: Graphene / Graphite / Nanobelts / Blood pressure sensor
