2.5.3 Investigations on a MOX Gas Sensor as an Infrared Source for an IR-based Gas Sensing System

K. Kühn, M. Leidinger, E. Pignanelli & A. Schütze
In this work a micro structured metal oxide (MOX) gas sensor was investigated as an infrared (IR) radiation source for an IR gas measurement system. Thus, the advantages of both sensor principles can be combined, namely the high sensitivity and broad response spectrum of the MOX gas sensor based on a chemical sensing principle as well as the high selectivity and stability of the IR measurement based on a physical sensing principle. This selectivity for...
