ZnO nanowire was synthesised chemically at low temperature on a flexible three-dimensional and porous cellulose paper. The morphology and crystallography of the composite was characterised by field emission scanning electron microscope and X-ray diffraction. Performance of the developed ZnO nanowire-cellulose paper composite as strain sensor demonstrated good stability, high gauge factor and good repeatability. The results indicate the possible use of this sensitive and robust strain sensor in the fields of biomedical sciences, MEMS devices and structural health monitoring and other fields.
