Researchers develop hydrogen alarm for remote hydrogen leak detection


Tomsk Polytechnic University has joined forces with the University of Chemistry and Technology of Prague to develop new sensors based on optical fibre to ensure accurate detection of hydrogen molecules in the air.

It is hoped that in the future the systems will be able to contribute a basis for a ‘hydrogen alarm’ used to detect leaks of explosive hydrogen.

“It is necessary to detect hydrogen molecules in a gas mixture,” said Pavel Postnikov, one of the Authors and Associate Professor of the TPU Research School of Chemistry and Applied Biomedical Sciences.
