ZnO Nanostructure Based QCM Sensor to Detect Ethanol at Room Temperature Fabricated by All Wet Process†
AbstractQCM is one of major sensing methods for volatile organic compounds (VOC) at room temperature. Nanostructure is effective to increase the sensitivity because of its large surface area. We introduced ZnO nanostructure to detect ethanol gas. ZnO nanostructure was fabricated by all wet process such as electrodeposition and chemical bath deposition (CBD). In this case, seed layer was obtained by electrodeposition, and nanostructure was formed by the CBD. The thickness of seed layer was controllable by charge amount on the electrodeposition, and that of nanostructure was controllable by deposition time on the CBD. As the results, the sensitivity increased with the thickness of the seed layer when the deposition time on CBD was set as 30 min. These results indicate that we can obtain high sensitive VOC sensor by using all wet process which is fit to large scale production with cost-effective.
