Product Announcement from Micron Instruments
Semiconductor Strain Gages are devices which vary in resistance as strain is applied to them. This property makes them very useful in measuring extremely small amounts of force with accuracy and precision. Creative uses for these gages have ranged from the measurement of internal pressures inside solid rocket engines to delicate medical apparatus used in microsurgery.
Gages made from semiconductor materials have advantages over more conventional types of strain gages. These include homogeneity, increased "sensitivity", and decreased size.
