Fundamentals of semiconductor gas sensors

N. Yamazoe and K. Shimanoe,     Kyushu University, Japan

Abstract:

As an introduction to this book, a variety of semiconductor gas sensors is presented. They are classified into five types, according to the transducers used: resistor, diode, MIS (metal-insulator-semiconductor) capacitor, MIS FET (metal-insulator-semiconductor field effect transistor) and oxygen concentration cell. The structure, working principle and sensing mechanism are described for each type. As the only type successfully on the market at present, the resistor is allotted considerably more space than the alternative semiconductor gas sensors, with experimental knowledge and the theory of gas response described in detail. The ...
