Metal chloride sensor nanocomposites

Thin film devices comprising ceramic matrix and embedded metal chloride nanoparticles, which produce specific chemioptical functionalities due to reversible complexation effects.

The optical nanocomposites are produced by in-situ chemical synthesis in the matrix to form well-dispersed and sized nanoparticles in the matrix. Special links with the matrix constituents offer greater possibilities. Specific examples include sensors such as silica/cobalt chloride for humidity detection and silica / nickel chloride for ammonia detection.
