Abstract

This contribution presents the integration of glass-ceramic tapes on alumina substrates to increase the sensitivity of thermoelectric hydrocarbon gas sensors. Both ceramic materials have different thermal conductivity. Their combination into one sensor structure significantly improves the sensitivity by at the same time maintaining the excellent mechanical stability at high temperatures. Furthermore, this special technology allows for an easy integration of additional functional elements such as screen-printed thermocouples for temperature control purposes.
