Tin Oxide-Carbon Nanotube Composite for NO X Sensing
Abstract:Tin oxide-single wall carbon nanotube (SWCNT) nano composites are synthesized for gas sensor application. The fabrication includes deposition of porous SWCNTs on thermally oxidized SiO2 substrates followed by rheotaxial growth of Sn and thermal oxidation at 300, 400, 500, and 600 °C in air. The effects of oxidation temperature on morphology, microstructure, and gas sensing properties are investigated for process optimization. The tin monoxide oxidized at 400 °C showed the highest response at the operating temperature of 200 °C. Under the optimized test condition, the composite structure showed better response than both structures of SWCNTs and thin film SnO.
