Fabricating ZnO Nanorods Sensor for Chemical Gas Detection at Room Temperature
Abstract:We present a sensor fabricated by simply casting ZnO nanorods on a microelectrodes array for chemical gas detection at room temperature. The ammonia and ethanol gas sensing characteristics were carefully investigated. The sensor exhibited high sensitivity for both ammonia and ethanol gases. The response and recover time are less than 20 seconds, respectively. Present results demonstrate the potential application of ZnO nanorods for fabricating highly sensitive gas sensors.
