Gas Sensors Based on Conducting Metal Oxides : Basic Understanding, Technology and Applications, Paperback / softback Book


Gas Sensors Based on Conducting Metal Oxides: Basic Understanding, Technology and Applications focuses on two distinct types of gas sensors based on conducting metal oxides.

Ion conduction, applied in so-called solid-state electrolytic sensors for one, and electronic conduction used in semiconductivity gas sensors for the other.

The well-known -probe, a key component to optimize combustion in car engines, is an example of the former type, and the in-cabin car air-quality control SnO2 and WO2 sensor array stands for the semiconductivity type.

Chapters cover basic aspects of functioning principles and describe the technologies and challenges of present and future sensors.
