Effects of Materials Chemistry and Morphology on Conductometric Sensor Signals
Douglas C. Meier, Stephen Semancik
Observation of conductance changes in material films upon their interactions with gas phase molecules is the basis of operation of the chemical microsensors being developed in the Chemical Sciences and Technology Laboratory at NIST. These interactions are based upon the identity of the analyte molecule, the operating temperature of the sensor device, and the physical and chemical properties of the sensing film. In this study of the performance of chemical vapor deposition (CVD) TiO2, SnO2, layered oxides, and Ru-doped oxide sensing films, we demonstrate the degrees to which variations in material film thickness, morphology, and chemical composition affect a sensor s response to a given analyte. We further demonstrate that these material-dependent responses can be used as a basis for analyte identification.
