Electrical Impedance Measurement of PZT Nanofiber sensors are performed and material properties including resistivity and dielectric constant are derived from the measurements. Nanofibers formed by electro-spinning with diameters ranging from 10 to 150 nm were collected and integrated into sensors using microfabrication techniques. The nanosensor impedance was extremely high at low frequencies and special matching circuitry was fabricated to detect output. The resulting impedance measurements are also compared with those of individual nanofibers that were tested using Scanning Conductive Microscopy (SCM) and Conductive AFM.
