Abstract

To investigate the localized electrochemical properties of an electrode composed of platinum (Pt), a thin-film loop containing two junctions between the catalytic metal Pt and the noncatalytic metal titanium was fabricated. When the loop was open and only one junction was exposed to 10% hydrogen in nitrogen gas, an output voltage change of about 30 nV was generated between these two junctions. The electron density change due to the equilibrium reaction of hydrogen dissociation along the part exposed to hydrogen induced a balance between the diffusion and drift caused by the electric field at both ends of the Pt film.
