New hydrogen gas sensor has been prepared by α-MnO2 nanowires in polydimethylsiloxane matrix. For this purpose, the high aspect ratio α-MnO2 nanowires has been prepared by the aid of hydrothermal method and then dispersed into poly-dimethyl siloxane polymer media. For gas sensing, the samples have been exposed under different gas concentrations from 0 to 5%. The sensor responses have been examined by normalized ellipsometric parameter with respect to the chamber filled with N2 Gas. Our results indicate linear behavior of resonance wavelength in ellipsometric parameter as a function of gas concentrations which can open a new insight for the sample’s capability to hydrogen gas sensing applications.
