Abstract

Using co-precipitation to synthesize (CeO2)0.95(Y2O3)0.05 (YDC) and solid reaction method to synthesize (CeO2)0.75(ZrO2)0.25 (ZDC), and the characterization for both crystal structure and micro-structure of the two materials was conducted with X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron microscope (SEM) methods. Prepare the YDC and ZDC based limited current O2 sensor by employing platinum pasting bonding method. Sensing characteristics of the sensor were obtained at different conditions and study on the impact of temperature, O2 concentration as well as water vapor pressure on the sensing characteristics had been conducted. XRD results show that the phase structure of both YDC and ZDC is cubic phase. SEM results show that both YDC and ZDC layers are dense layers, which are then qualified to be the composition materials of the sensor. This limited current O2 sensor shows good sensing performance and conforms to the Knudsen model. Log(IL•T) depends linearly on 1000/T with R2 of 0.9904, IL depends linearly on x(O2) with R2 of 0.9726 and sensing characteristics are not affected by p(H2O).
