The technology developed by 360ip’s partner provides an improved semiconductor alcohol gas sensor through the use of a novel sensing material. The material is comprised of cadmium sulfide-coated carbon nanotubes, and it is compatible with existing semiconductor alcohol gas sensor manufacturing processes.
The partner’s alcohol gas sensor provides the following advantages:
High sensitivity (S=Ra/Rg) value of 6 @ 50-100 ppm.
High specificity with no response to hydrogen sulfide/methane/ammonia/hydrogen/acetone/ benzene/methylbenzene at 1000ppm.
Low heating temperature of 250 °C.
Low heating voltage of 4.5V.
Fast response time of 10s.
