Abstract
The Scott Laboratory at the University of Saskatchewan has been working over the past several months to test and characterize the stability and gas sensing properties of Ag nanoparticle films deposited on substrates at DRDC Suffield. Early on, it became apparent that reproducibility as well as storage and testing conditions of these films were non-trivial considerations, however clear responses to hexane, ethanol, and water were demonstrated. However, due to the irreproducibility of responses, it was not possible to generate full detection limit studies for the response of the sensors to various gases. This report summarizes all of our findings between June and August 2009.
