Chemical gas sensors based on nanowires can find a wide range of applications in clinical assaying, environmental emission control, explosive detection, agricultural storage and shipping, and workplace hazard monitoring. Sensors in the forms of nanowires are expected to have significantly enhanced performance due to high surface-volume ratio and quasi-one-dimensional confinement in nanowires. Indeed, chemical gas sensors based on nanowires with a ppb level sensitivity have been demonstrated. In…
