Application of semiconductor sensors to gas analysis

Institute for Ore Research, 147 13 Prague 4


A device was set up based on semiconductor sensors, which made it possible to study the conditions of the sensor response to a change of the concentration of combustible gases and vapours in the atmosphere monitored. The conditions were established under which the method can be applied in atmosphere analysis to the determination of the concentration of a combustible gas or vapour.
