Miniature multi-electrode electrochemical cell in LTCC

The miniaturization of analytical instruments and packaging of novel sensors is an area that has attracted significant research interest and offers many opportunities for product commercialization. Electrochemical sensors have been used to detect a wide variety of compounds including toxic gases. A miniature electrochemical cell has been designed, constructed, and tested for functionality. The cell will be used in identifying and selecting chemical species in solutions. The cell was constructed of low temperature cofired ceramic (LTCC) material using gold for the electrodes. Tests performed in sulfuric acid and sea water solutions show that the cell is functioning based on cyclic voltammetry (CV) and electrochemical impedance spectroscopy (EIS) analysis. Miniaturization allows the cell to be deployed as a sensor in many different environments. © International Microelectronics And Packaging Society - JMEP,.
