Title (EN) DUAL-FUNCTION ACTIVE MATRIX SENSOR ARRAY
(FR) RÉSEAU DE CAPTEURS À MATRICE ACTIVE À DOUBLE FONCTION
Abstract:
(EN) A method is provided for making multiple environmental measurements using a single sensing element. Each sensing element (sensel) includes a thin-film transistor (TFT) and a passive element. Typically, a plurality of sensels is provided arranged into an array. In response to an electrical stimulus, an electrical measurement is supplied that is responsive to a change in TFT electrical characteristic correlated to a first environmental condition, as well as a change in a characteristic of the passive element correlated to a second environmental condition. When the sensels are formed in an array, a plurality of electrical measurements is supplied corresponding plurality of locations on a monitored surface. Some exemplary environmental conditions include temperature, pressure, moisture, chemicals, oxygen, solution pH, salinity, and shear. The method determines the first environmental condition independent of the second environmental condition, while determining the second environmental condition independent of the first environmental condition.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un procédé permettant d'effectuer plusieurs mesures environnementales au moyen d'un seul élément de détection. Chaque élément de détection (sensel) comprend un transistor à couches minces (TFT) et un élément passif. Généralement, plusieurs sensels sont agencés en réseau. En réponse à un stimulus électrique, on obtient une mesure électrique qui est sensible à un changement de caractéristique électrique du TFT corrélé à une première condition environnementale, ainsi qu'à un changement d'une caractéristique de l'élément passif corrélé à une seconde condition environnementale. Quand les sensels sont formés en réseau, on obtient plusieurs mesures électriques correspondant à plusieurs emplacements sur une surface surveillée. Les conditions environnementales comprennent, par exemple, la température, la pression, l'humidité, les produits chimiques, l'oxygène, le pH d'une solution, la salinité et un cisaillement. Le procédé détermine la première condition environnementale indépendamment de la seconde condition environnementale, tout en déterminant la seconde condition environnementale indépendamment de la première condition environnementale.
