SciTechnol publishes articles with assured high quality, immediate, efficient peer evaluation course of and contributes within the field of science and technology by accelerating discovery and keeping tempo with the working and advancing world. This book addresses all stylistic matters in the related disciplines of physical and organic science, medicine, health, and technology.

Sensors primarily based on zinc oxide (ZnO), titanium dioxide (TiO2), tungsten trioxide (WO3), copper oxide (CuO and Cu2O), tin oxide (SnO and SnO2) and vanadium oxide (VO2 and V2O5), both as nanoparticles or as continuous films or layers, are described. Their sensing properties are correlated to dimension, shape, presence of defects and doping parts, amongst other related parameters. Various methods and methods of fabricating these supplies are addressed. The review concludes with novel approaches for functionalization and future perspectives for sensor developments.

Over the years, semiconductor steel oxide-based materials have been extensively employed as sensors in several functions. They are of particular interest on the nanometer scale, since it is broadly known that a smaller crystallite size enhances a sensor’s efficiency. Moreover, these supplies are highly appealing as they are often produced by low-price wet-chemical synthesis routes and are in general nontoxic, earth plentiful and …
