Paper Abstract

Results of a hydrogen sensor based on light scattering from a porous silicon surface coated with a thin palladium film are discussed. Reflected light scattered from the rough surface of porous silicon surface with a thin palladium film is compared before and after exposure to hydrogen gas. After exposure to hydrogen gas the sensor's optical reflectance is decreased indicating the presence of hydrogen.
