Description: The combination of polymer / ceramic sensors can be used for both room temperature and elevated temperatures. For various applications, the change in electric properties in different forms such as voltage, current, frequency and so on is used in sensor devices. Humidity and gas sensors can be grouped into two types: resistive and capacitive types. Particularly in recent years the use of humidity control systems has greatly increased in the quality control of production processes and products in a wide range of industries. The gas sensing characteristics of a given sensing element depends upon the material used, the method of preparation, and the resulting microstructure. Many conducting polymers were tested for humidity and gas sensing behavior, among them polypyrrole is the promising candidate, a wide verity of ceramic materials were tested as sensors, these ceramic materials have shown the great advantage in terms of their porsivity and microstructure resulting from their preparation. This has motivated the author to study of sensor behavior of conducting polypyrrole / ceramic composites.
