Paper Title:
Impedance Characteristics of Electrospun Nylon-6/TiO2 Nanocomposite for Humidity Sensor
  Abstract

Resistive relative humidity (RH) sensors were fabricated by nano composites of nylon-6 and titanium dioxide nanopowders. The results indicated that these sensors can be fabricated as a reliable, low cost and fast response instruments. Different percentages of nylon-6 and TiO2 were studied and average diameters of the resultant nanofibers were found the 80 to 120 nm. The nano composite of nylon-6/TiO2 nanofibers was electrospun on the interdigital gold electrode on the glass substrate. It was found that the impedance of the mat ranged from 107 Ω to 102 Ω while the relative humidity was increased from 11% RH and 97.3% at room temperature. Transition electron microscopy (TEM) and scanning electron microscopy (SEM) were used to study the morphology of the nano composite.
