Sensor coating especially sensitive to hydrocarbons

AppliedSensor developed a new sensitive layer for their silicone µ-MOS sensors. This special layer has the advantage that it shows reduced cross sensitivity to inorganic analytes as hydrogen and nitrogen dioxide. This property enables the sensor to detect hydrocarbons on a background of inorganic gases, which are common in environment. Combined with a very short response time, measurements with high resolution can be achieved. In addition the sensor has a low power consumption, which offers the use in mobile applications (battery operated). Besides this it's possible to glue the chip (sensor) directly on a PCB and omit expensive costs for packaging on a header. On basis of these sensors a new air classification module for indoor applications was developed
