Thermometric Gas Sensing

The response of all kind of sensors to temperature changes has always to be considered as an important influencing factor of the stability of the reading. The principle of temperature sensing is one of the most reliable transduction methods. Temperature changes can be detected simply, sensitively and reliably, and thereby also rather inexpensively. Although most enabling technologies involve either new materials or material advances, the British MNT Roadmap for gas sensors, published in 2006 , considers among the enabling technologies, lower cost temperature measurements as well. Therefore, the field of thermometric gas sensing, which is often called calorimetric gas sensing too, remains the subject of much research and development.
