Pt/TiO2 thick film gas sensors were modified by dipping method in H2PtCl6 contained solution. In order to get different Pt/TiO2 surface states, the thick films were treated with different process. Microstructural and morphological characteristics were investigated by XRD and SEM. The resistance-oxygen partial pressure relationship was used to calculate activation energy (E) of this film. Steady-state resistance and dynamic response of the sensor exposed to H2/O2 were tested, separately. The results indicated that the steady-state resistance which affected by spill-over effect arose from the Pt distribution states. However, the response time was associated with the activation energy (E). Sensors with lower activation energy exhibited a faster rate of response when the magnitude of response was approximately uniform.
