This paper reports the fabrication process of ZnO and GaN nanobridges by electrospinning, to be used for gas sensing applications. The main purpose is to produce single suspended fibers with their surfaces completely exposed to the gas for an enhanced sensitivity when compared with sensors fabricated with structures deposited on a substrate. In addition, the isolation from the substrate is highly favourable for a well-controlled current setting, taking advantage of self-heating effects to set… CONTINUE READING
