Abstract
The paper presents the results of numerical analyses of the surface acoustic wave (SAW) gas sensor based on WO3 layer with a catalytic nanolayer of Pd. The changes of SAW velocity vs. the surface electrical conductivity of the sensing layer is a essence of sensors of this kind. The conductivity of the porous sensoric layer which is deposited on a piezoelectric waveguide depends on the profile of concentration of gaseous molecules diffused inside the sensing layer. The Knudsen’s model of gas diffusion was used. Results of numerical analysis of the effect of the gaseous CH4 in air environment in the WO3 sensoric layer have been shown. The results of numerical analysis allow to select conditions of the SAW sensor, including the morphology of the sensor layer, its thickness and operating temperature. Some numerical results were verified by means of experimental studies.
