We report a novel, simple, and inexpensive method for preparing efficient carbon nanotube-based hydrogen sensors. Sensor devices were fabricated by simply spraying single-walled carbon nanotube (SWNT) dispersions on alumina substrates. Pd-functionalization of the employed SWNTs enabled increasing the device sensitivity to hydrogen. The effect of aging, thermal processing, and the employed carrier gases on the sensor performance is here described. The fabricated thin film sensors exhibited good sensitivity to hydrogen at room temperature in reversible and reproducible detection processes.
