Theory and practice of sensors with hot-wire electrodes

  • P. Gründler
Conference contribution


The possibilities and applicability of electrochemical sensors with heated electrodes are overviewed. A theory for such devices is developed, including the interactions between the heating alternating current and the electrochemical cell and the measuring circuit, as well as calculation of the temperature expansion. Experimental details on the circuitry and the electrode design are given, and results are presented for some analytical applications.
