Detection of Mercury Vapor in Air by Differential Heat Dissipation Measurements†
AbstractIn this work, a novel approach for the detection of mercury vapor in air is presented using differential heat dissipation measurements. Therefore, the temperature difference between an amalgamated and a non-exposed gold film is recorded, while heating both films with identical electrical power. As the amalgam layer lowers the heat dissipation, the amalgamated gold film reaches higher temperatures compared to the non-exposed gold film. Preliminary experiments show a clear dependence of the measured temperature difference on the mercury vapor concentration and the exposition time. Thus, a detection of mercury vapor is generally possible using differential heat dissipation measurements.
