X-Ray radiation sensors that work at room temperature are in demand. In this study, a novel, low-cost real-time X-ray radiation sensor based on SnO2 nanowires (NWs) was designed and tested. Networked SnO2 NWs were produced via the vapor–liquid–solid technique. X-ray diffraction (XRD), transmission electron microscopy (TEM) and field emission scanning electron microscopy (SEM) analyses were used to explore the crystallinity and morphology of synthesized SnO2 NWs. The fabricated sensor was exposed to X-rays (80 kV, 0.0–2.00 mA) and the leakage current variations were recorded at room temperature. The SnO2 NWs sensor showed a high and relatively linear response with respect to the X-ray intensity. The X-ray sensing results show the potential of networked SnO2 NWs as novel X-ray sensors.
