Abstract

We have investigated a lithography-free technique for On-Off type hydrogen sensors using a cracked palladium (Pd) film on an elastomeric substrate. Cracks were induced in a sputtered Pd film simply by undergoing hydrogen absorption and desorption processes. Compared to the same thickness of a Pd film on a Si/SiO 2 substrate that relied on the electron scattering mechanism, a cracked Pd film on an elastomeric substrate operated as a reversible On-Off hydrogen sensor based on the crack open-close mechanism when exposed to hydrogen. The thickness of a Pd film on the elastomeric substrate plays a significant role in determining the sensing mode of the cracked Pd film. The cracked Pd film with a thickness of 9-11 nm on the elastomeric substrate showed reversible and perfect On-Off responses under a wide range of hydrogen concentrations with large current variations and a fast response time of less than 1 s.
