Short summary
NiCr-carbon thin-film strain gauges offer the outstanding characteristic of a very high strain sensitivity. This can be very advantageous for many high-precision mechanical sensors like load cells. A downside of sensors based on these NiCr-carbon strain gauges is a rather large creep error, meaning reversible signal deviations at a constant load. We present two applicable methods for adjustment of the creep error: a modification of the film composition and a modification of the strain transfer.
