Surface Acoustic Wave Sensors for Hydrogen and Deuterium Detection
AbstractA delay-line-type surface acoustic wave (SAW) sensor based on a zinc oxide (ZnO) sensitive layer was developed. Two types of sensitive layers were obtained: ZnO nanowires and ZnO thin films, both deposited using laser methods (VLS-PLD and PLD, respectively) onto quartz substrates. The responses of sensors with two different nanowire lengths (300 and 600 nm) were compared with those of sensors with thin films of different thicknesses (ca. 100 and 200 nm) to different concentrations of hydrogen and deuterium. The experimental results revealed a high response at low concentrations and a rapid saturated response for nanowires, but a low response at low concentrations and a linear response to much higher gas concentrations for the thin-film-based SAW sensors.
