7.4.1 Chemical Sensors for Indoor Applications

Andreas Schütze
People spend an increasing amount of their time indoors. Thus, environmental conditions and air quality but also safety aspects are of specific concern in indoor settings. This contribution gives an overview of chemical sensor technologies used for indoor applications, focusing on explosive gas leak and fire detection as well as indoor air quality as the most relevant applications. These applications are traditionally addressed with a variety of technologies, such as metal-oxide semiconductor gas sensors for...
