Abstract:

This report summarizes research activity performed under this task order. The overall objective was to develop novel material interfaces with the potential to respond to changes in mechanical, thermal, or electromagnetic stimulus. The primary thrust was on the further development of artificial hair sensors AHS featuring a responsive carbon nanotube CNT array to serve as a piezoresistive element. This report outlines the fabrication and modeling of these systems, along with investigation of their potential for several applications of AFRL interest. Additionally, the task order included a preliminary investigation of polymer matrix composites under laser irradiation, which is reported under separate cover, as AFRL Interim Report AFRL-RX-WP-TR-2016-0071 dated 30 October 2015.
