Abstract

CuO nanowires have been synthesised by the thermal method in 100% oxygen ambient at 600°C. Gas sensing property has been examined by measuring the resistance change of the materials to 1% of butane gas and 1% of ethanol vapour separately under the filling gas of purified medical grade ambient air. It was found that CuO NWs was able to recover to its base line without any post-heat treatment on the samples after the reactant gas was vacuumed out from the chamber. Room temperature sensing of this sensor for organic volatile gases has been demonstrated. It is important as one of the first move to eliminate the use of bulky and power hungry heating components gain back the initial sensing power of the material.
