Surface acoustic wave interaction with humidity-sensitive TPPS4 nano-strip structure
Keywords:surface acoustic wave, porphyne nano-strip structure, humidity sensor
AbstractThe surface acoustic wave propagation in the structure consisting of Meso-tetra (4-sulfonatophenyl) porphine (TPPS4) film deposited on a piezoelectric lithium niobate substrate has been studied. The SAW velocity decrease and the attenuation increase with growing ambient humidity. This effect is attributed to the changes in the film viscoelasticity due to the water adsorption. Much weaker response is observed when the water vapour is replaced by the acetone vapour. The possibility of using TPPS4 - LiNbO3 structure as a SAW humidity sensor has been demonstrated.
