Micro CO2 Sensor Based on Li2CO3, Pt | Li3PO4 | Pt, Li2TiO3-TiO2 Structure


Article Preview

This paper presents a micro solid electrolyte CO2 gas sensor in which Li2CO3, Li2TiO3-TiO2 serves as sensing and reference electrodes respectively, and the Li3PO4 film acts as the electrolyte. The sensor was constructed in the sequent layers of O2, CO2, Li2CO3, Pt | Li3PO4 | Pt, Li2TiO3-TiO2, O2, CO2 on the Al2O3 substrate by MEMS process. Experimental results indicate that the micro solid-electrolyte CO2 gas sensor has a relatively rapid speed of response. By discussions, we may find that the improved performance will be realized by optimizing the primary parameters of the sensor.
