Gas Sensing Properties of Nanostructured ZnO : A Review

Authors(1) :-P. V. Dholakia

In this communication, I present the review on the reported work on gas sensing properties of nanostructured Zinc Oxide (ZnO) thin films and particles. Effect of sintering temperature on structure and granular morphology of nanoparticles is discussed in the context of gas sensing. In case of thin films, effect of ‘In’ doping on structural, optical and eventually on acetone sensing properties is elaborated.
