An inkjet-printed capacitive sensor for water level or quality monitoring: investigated theoretically and experimentally

Author affiliations

Abstract

Ink printing is utilized to develop a coplanar capacitive senor with microscale electrodes, which exhibits high sensitivity. The sensor’s capacitance has been theoretically and experimentally correlated to the water resistivity. As a cost-effective, portable and reusable sensor, its application for water level measuring and quality monitoring has been demonstrated.
