Humidity Sensitive Characteristics of Porous Li-Mg-Ti-O-F Ceramic Materials
Abstract: Ceramic porous MgTiO3 materials have been prepared by classical solid-state route. The sintered pellets of MgTiO3 with different LiF contents were characterized for humidity-sensing application. The sintered disks of these mixtures were subjected to capacitance measurements at 20℃as function of the relative humidity from which revealed that the Mixture MgTiO3 + 2% LiF (w/w) has the better characteristics. The disks were subjected to DC resistance measurements as a function of relative humidity in the range 15% - 95% RH. The selectivity of this material was discussed and compared to commercial sensor results. The response and recovery characteristics were assessed.
