Abstract : The patent relates to a transducer, and method for making it, comprising a composite film for sensing pressure comprising a pair of film sandwiches, each sandwich comprising a poled polymeric films with metallic film electrodes on opposite surfaces. One electrode does not extend quite to the end of the polymer and is considered the 'hot' electrode. Two such transducer film sandwiches are cemented together with the hot electrodes in contact with each other, the center wire from a coaxial cable being in contact with and between them. The outer electrodes are electrically connected to the shield of the cable and the connection is encapsulated.
