A novel resistive-type humidity microsensor was fabricated by a microelectromechanical system (MEMS) technology and thick-film technology. The microsensor was composed of a suspended planar membrane bridged to the base silicon substrate with two beams. Metal electrodes were deposited on the surface of the membrane, and a composite film of poly-[3-(methacryloylamino)propyl] trimethyl ammonium chloride and SiO2 (PMAPTAC/SiO2) was coated as a humidity-sensing material on the top of the electrodes. The humidity-sensing principle of the sensor was based on the conductivity change of coated composite film upon adsorption/desorption of water vapor. The logarithmic impedance of the microsensor measured at 1 kHz decreased linearly with increasing the humidity in the range of 30-90%RH. The applied voltage above I V did not influence the humidity response of the microsensor. The maximum difference between humidification and desiccation process was 5.1%RH at 30%RH. The influence of temperature was -0.72%RH/degrees C on average in the temperature range 15-25 degrees C and the humidity range of 30-90%RH. (c) 2005 Elsevier B.V. All Rights reserved.
