Title: Process for the preparation of a thick film resistor useful for making strain gauge

Abstract: This invention particularly relates to a thick film resistor and a process for the preparation of said thick firm resistor useful for making strain gauge with enhanced gauge factor upto 1000. The thick film resistor of the present invention is obtained by inducing the strain sensitivity in thick film resistor after its fabrication on substrate by coating it with a formulation capable of gauge factor enhancement and subjecting it to high temperature in furnace. The usage of thick film resistor have industrial applications such as hybrid circuit and thermistors etc.
