New Hydrogen Findings Reported from National Taiwan University of Science and Technology (Hydrogen-sensing response of grass-like carbon nanotube/nickel nanostructure by microwave treatment)

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Science Letter -- Current study results on Hydrogen have been published. According to news reporting originating in Taipei, Taiwan, by NewsRx journalists, research stated, "A grass-like carbon nanotube/nickel (CNT/Ni) sensor treated by microwave (MW) technique to enhance hydrogen (H-2) gas-sensing response was used."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the National Taiwan University of Science and Technology, "A leaf-like CNT/Ni nanostructure was changed into a grass-like CNT/Ni nanostructure through the MW treatment technique in order to enhance the H-2 sensor response. The H-2 gas sensing characteristics of grass-like CNT/Ni were found to have a much higher sensor response of similar to 11% at 1000 ppm H-2 gas, approximately 33 times greater than that of leaf-like CNT/Ni (similar to 0.33%) without MW treatment."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "The MW technique is simple, energy-efficient at low temperature (58 degrees C), and effectively enhances the sensing response of CNT/Ni sensors."
