4.4.2 Chemical NanoSensors and Microsystems for Air Pollution Detection

J. R. Morante
The understanding chemical to electrical transduction mechanisms at the nano scale level becomes a fundamental issue for developing and designing feasible and reliable gas sensors. Air pollution detection requires the simultaneous detection of oxidizing and reducing gases in the presence of many potential interfering molecules, especially water, under stable conditions and avoiding sensor degradation. In this contribution, on the base of the analysis performed on individual nanowire platforms, the transduction mechanisms at the nano scale...
