The detection of dissolved hydrogen in liquids is crucial to many industrial applications, such as fault detection for oil-filled electrical equipment. To enhance the performance of metal-insulator-semiconductor (MIS) sensors for dissolved hydrogen detection, a palladium MIS sensor has been modified by depositing a polyimide (PI) layer above the palladium surface. Response measurements of the PI-coated sensors in mineral oil indicate that hydrogen is sensitively detected, while the effect of interfering gases on sensor response is minimized.
