By use of a Pd-SiO2-Si structure as a hydrogen sensor, very small changes in the hydrogen pressure can be detected. Furthermore, such a structure can be used to detect hydrogen with perfect discrimination during a catalytic surface reaction. By using this technique, together with work-function and desorption measurements, in the study of the water-forming reaction on Pd, we conclude that hydrogen has an activated lateral mobility on Pd.
