A new theoretical model has been proposed in this analysis to explain the experimentally observed gas sensitivity variation in nanocrystalline tin oxide (SnO2) thin film sensor as a function of film thickness. Excellent agreement between the theoretical prediction and some of the experimental results reported in the literature has been observed. The present theoretical model also overcomes the limitations of the earlier models.
The growing interest and activity in the field of sensor technologies requires a forum for rapid dissemination of important results: Sensor Letters is that forum. Sensor Letters offers scientists, engineers and medical experts timely, peer-reviewed research on sensor science and technology of the highest quality. Sensor Letters publish original rapid communications, full papers and timely state-of-the-art reviews encompassing the fundamental and applied research on sensor science and technology in all fields of science, engineering, and medicine. Highest priority will be given to short communications reporting important new scientific and technological findings.
