The demands for transparent, flexible electronic devices are continuously increasing due to their potential applications to the human body. In particular, skin-like, transparent, flexible strain sensors have been developed to realize multifunctional human-machine interfaces. Here, we report a sandwich-like structured strain sensor with excellent optical transparency based on highly purified, solution-processed, 99% metallic CNT-polydimethylsiloxane (PDMS) composite thin films. Our CNT-PDMS composite strain sensors are mechanically compliant, physically robust, and easily fabricated. The fabricated strain sensors exhibit a high optical transparency of over 92% in the visible range with acceptable sensing performances in terms of sensitivity, hysteresis, linearity, and drift. We also found that the sensitivity and linearity of the strain sensors can be controlled by the number of CNT sprays; hence, our sensor can be applied and controlled based on the need of individual applications. Finally, we investigated the detections of human activities and emotions by mounting our transparent strain sensor on various spots of human skins.
