Digital Sensors and Sensor Sysstems


Abstract: In order to improve the zeolite chemical sensors sensibility, three different electrode structures are compared in this work: conventional interdigitated electrodes (IDE), serpentine electrodes (SRE) and ring-shaped electrodes (RSE). Simulation results and experimental characterization of these electrodes showed that ring-shaped electrodes have a slight capacitance increase per unit of area. When used as a zeolite chemical sensor, the ring-shaped electrodes prove to be more suitable since they take advantage of a better usage of the drop distribution and a better capacitance per area ratio.


Keywords: Interdigitated electrodes, Ring-shaped electrodes, Serpentine electrodes, Chemical sensors, Electrode structure, Interdigital electrodes, Zeolite.
