9780857092366: Semiconductor Gas Sensors (Woodhead Publishing Series in Electronic and Optical Materials)

Semiconductor gas sensors have a wide range of applications in safety, process control, environmental monitoring, indoor or cabin air quality and medical diagnosis. This important book summarises recent research on basic principles, new materials and emerging technologies in this essential field.

The first part of the book reviews the underlying principles and sensing mechanisms for n- and p-type oxide semiconductors, introduces the theory for nanosize materials and describes the role of electrode-semiconductor interfaces. The second part of the book describes recent developments in silicon carbide- and graphene-based gas sensors, wide bandgap semiconductor gas sensors and micromachined and direct thermoelectric gas sensors. Part 3 discusses the use of nanomaterials for gas sensing, including metal oxide nanostructures, quantum dots, single-alled carbon nanotubes and porous silicon. The final part of the book surveys key applications in environmental monitoring, detecting chemical warfare agents and monitoring gases such as carbon dioxide.

Semiconductor gas sensors is a valuable reference work for all those involved in gas monitoring, including those in the building industry, environmental engineers, defence and security specialists and researchers in this field.

  • Provides an overview of resistor and non-resistor sensors
  • Reviews developments in gas sensors and sensing methods, including graphene based sensors and direct thermoelectric sensors
  • Discusses the use of nanomaterials in gas sensing

Product Description:

Semiconductor gas sensors are increasingly being used as gas detectors for applications such as gas-leak alarm, process control and pollution control. Researchers have attempted to meet the demand for higher sensitivity and selectivity of devices by modifying the properties of the semiconductor gas sensors. This has mainly been achieved by developing fabrication methods such as thin and thick film techniques, the addition of transition metals onto sensors and more recently, nanostructuring materials. The book begins with an introductory review of resistor and non-resistor types of sensor, conduction mechanisms, electrode materials and electrode-oxide interfaces. The second part introduces recent developments in silicon carbide and graphene-based gas sensors, wide bandgap semiconductor gas sensors, micromachined and direct thermoelectric sensors, while part three discusses the use of nanomaterials, including metal oxide nanostructures, quantum dots, single-walled carbon nanotubes and porous silicon. The conclusion surveys key applications in environmental monitoring, detecting chemical warfare agents and monitoring gases such as carbon dioxide.
