Biologically inspired design of hydrogel-capped hair sensors for enhanced underwater flow detection

Author affiliations

Abstract

Using a precision drop-casting method, a bioinspired hydrogel-capped hair sensory system was created, which enhanced the performance of flow detection by about two orders of magnitude and endowed the sensors with threshold sensitivities that rival those of fish.
