Abstract: The workflow of a high throughput screening setup for the rapid identification ofnew and improved sensor materials is presented. The polyol method was applied to preparenanoparticular metal oxides as base materials, which were functionalised by surface doping.Using multi-electrode substrates and high throughput impedance spectroscopy (HT-IS) awide range of materials could be screened in a short time. Applying HT-IS in search of newselective gas sensing materials a NO2-tolerant NO sensing material with reducedsensitivities towards other test gases was identified based on iridium doped zinc oxide.Analogous behaviour was observed for iridium doped indium oxide.
Keywords: High throughput experimentation; gas sensor; metal oxide; doping; impedance spectroscopy; nitrogen oxides.
