1. INTRODUCTION

Representative metal oxide semiconductors have unique properties that are perfect for several applications such as gas sensors or photodetectors (Eranna et al. 2004; Law et al. 2004; Korotcenkov 2007; Kuchibhatla et al. 2007; Comini et al. 2009). The basic working principle of these materials as chemical or light-sensing devices is based on the electrical transduction reactions which take place mainly at the interface between molecular adsorbents and the metal oxide’s surfaces (Kolmakov et al. 2005; Korotcenkov ...
