Hydrogen detection – to enable improved safety and more reliable applications.

Our gas sensor platform for hydrogen offers the capability to operate in tough conditions and with superior performance. The sensor can be used for reliable safety monitoring as well as a tool for accurate system diagnostics and real-time monitoring of processes involving hydrogen.

Hydrogen sensor platform

The Insplorion sensor platform for hydrogen detection enables easier implementation and higher reliability. The technology consists of a Pd-based sensing element with optical read-out, which has been demonstrated to provide fast response with high selectivity for hydrogen. The sensing element does not require any particular background for operation, which means it can be used in air, inert atmosphere and even vacuum.


The technology enables you to measure in full range (0-100 vol%) hydrogen, and can be operated in air, inert atmosphere and even vacuum.


The Pd-based platform offers very high selectivity towards hydrogen, which means it is able to be used in environments involving other interfering gases.


Nano-sensing offers the capability to fine-tune the dynamics of gas interaction, which has demonstrated the possibility to sustain a response time less than a second.

Insplorion Leakage sensor

Detects any leakages quickly

Offers high selectivity towards hydrogen, and the ability to withstand any saturation challenge. The sensor gives the user the capability for fast and precise indications of hydrogen leakages.

Process sensor

Insplorion Process Sensor

Direct monitoring of hydrogen level

Offers the ability to continuously monitor hydrogen processes, with high selectivity for any concentration of hydrogen. The sensor can be installed in-line with hydrogen processes for applications such as fuel cells, electrolysers and gas turbines.

Nano Plasmonic Sensing

Our sensors for hydrogen are built on a Pd alloy platform and functionalised to enable robust and accurate monitoring. The principle of operation is NanoPlasmonic Sensing (NPS), relying on an optical read-out of metal nanostructures.
