Performance Analysis of Micro Heaters for Sensor Applications

Performance Analysis of Micro Heaters for Sensor Applications

This paper presents the architecture, simulation and analysis for sensor applications of Platinum micro-heaters. In order to investigate the thermal properties of individual electrically powered platinum micro-heaters, the Finite Element Method (FEM) analysis was used. Using COMSOL, the uniform distribution of heat and optimization of power usage for the micro-heaters were carried out by simulating various possible patterns. In the simulation, four separate micro-heater patterns were used and they are: (a) rectangular spiral, (b) diagonal slant, (c) double spiral and (d) complementary form of double spiral.
