Abstract:Many sensors for hydrogen use palladium as a sensing material due to its selective reaction with the gas. As Pd reacts with H2, its electrical and optical properties change in the process. The temperature of the system will influence the response time and magnitude due to changes in reaction time and diffusion depth of the gas into the sensing material for different temperatures. In this work, measurements are taken of the reflection power, using a broadband light source, from thin films of palladium for several gas concentrations and temperatures. These measurements are used to characterize the response time and magnitude of the change in optical properties, so that the performance of palladium based hydrogen sensors can be predicted and understood.
