With the expansion of the use of sensors in everyday life, especially in medical and security fields, it has become pertinent that a substrate be chosen which is not only compatible with the sensor functionality and its manufacturing flow but also with the use environment of the sensor.

Roll-to-roll manufacturability is also an important consideration along with the quality, reliability and cost of the end product. Material advances have provided a wide variety of choices which need to be studied and understood for competitive applications.

In this study, a sample of the results of the evaluation of selected substrate materials are presented. This effort helps provide a reference database and comparison to choose a material for a particular application and application environment.
