How do stylus pens work?

You might not know how a touch screen works and you might not care. Most of us a just happy to know that it works when you touch it with your finger. It works because a touch screen detects the electrical property of your body known as capacitance.

You probably know that a stylus pen has a rubber tip and you'll know that rubber is an electrical insulator and insulation stops electricity flowing. The secret is that the rubber is made conductive by adding a conductive material to the mix, like graphite for instance.

Next, the barrel of the stylus pen needs to be slightly conductive too so that your own electrical charge can flow to the rubber tip. If the pen barrel is not metal then it will have a conductive material mixed into the plastic body.

The touch screen is coated with an incredibly thin conductive coating of a metal like Indium tin oxide (ITO) which is transparent. Electrical signals are applied at the corners of the screen and a tap from the stylus or your finger causes the pattern of the signal to be altered such that the position can detected. It can also detect the difference between a touch, swipe and tap.

This works well for small screens but for large screens the signal gets vague and difficult to detect in the middle of the screen. Apple has made it work for the 12.9 inch diameter screen of the iPad Pro. For larger screens research is looking into a technology called frustrated total internal reflection but that is a story for another day.
