      In this research, we have studied physisorption of hydrogen molecules on armchair boron nitride (BN) nanotube (3,3) using density functional methods and its effect on the current–voltage ($I–V$) characteristic of the nanotube as a function of concentration using Green’s function techniques. The adsorption geometries and energies, charge transfer and electron transport are calculated. It is found that H$_2$ physisorption can suppress the $I–V$ characteristic of the BN nanotube, but it has no effect on the band gap of the nanotube. As the H$_2$concentration increases, under the same applied bias voltage, the current through the BN nanotube first increases and then begins to decline. The current–voltage characteristic indicates that H$_2$ molecules can be detected by aBN-based sensor.
