The Effects of Two Thick Film Deposition Methods on Tin Dioxide Gas Sensor Performance

Article, Other literature type English OPEN
Smitesh D. Bakrania; Margaret S. Wooldridge;

This work demonstrates the variability in performance between SnO2 thick film gas sensors prepared using two types of film deposition methods. SnO2 powders were deposited on sensor platforms with and without the use of binders. Three commonly utilized binder recipes wer... View more
