Disposable, Paper-Based, Inkjet-Printed Humidity and H2S Gas Sensor

posted Dec 6, 2016, 3:41 AM by Khaled salama
We continue working on H2S sensors in collaboration with prof. Atif Shamim and Prof. Hammad Cheema. We present an inkjet-printed, fully passive sensor capable of either humidity or gas sensing. The sensor is composed of an interdigitated electrode, a customized printable gas sensitive ink and a specialized dipole antenna for wireless sensing. The interdigitated electrode printed on
a paper substrate provides the base conductivity that varies during the sensing process.  A fast response time of 3 min is achieved at room temperature for a H2S concentration of 10 ppm at a relative humidity (RH) of 45%. The passive wireless sensing is enabled through an antenna in which the inner loop takes care of conductivity changes in the 4–5 GHz band, whereas the outer-dipole arm
is used for chipless identification in the 2–3 GHz band.
