Hydrogen sensing performance of silica microfiber elaborated with Pd nanoparticles

Li, Jin; Fan, Rui; Hu, Haifeng; Yao, Chengbao


A hydrogen sensor has been proposed by coating Pd nanoparticles-PMMA composite organic sol on silica microfiber independent on any expensive or complex chemical process. The thickness of cladding layer and the diameter of elaborated microfiber were determined as ∼20 μm and ∼57.93 μm, respectively. Due to the evanescent wave excited by silica microfiber and the amorphous structure of PMMA film, the Pd nanoparticles effectively absorbed the hydrogen molecules and resulted in the shift of...[Show more]
