Elucidating structure-property-performance relationships of plasma modified tin(IV) oxide nanomaterials for enhanced gas sensing applications
MetadataShow full item record
This dissertation examines structure-property-performance relationships of plasma modified tin(IV) oxide (SnO2) nanomaterials to successfully and efficiently create sensitive targeted gas sensors. Different project aspects include (1) materials characterization before and after plasma modification, (2) plasma diagnostics with and without a SnO2 nanomaterial, (3) sensor performance testing, and ultimately (4) elucidation of gas-surface relationships during this project. The research presented herein focuses on a holistic approach to addressing current limitations in gas sensors to produce desired ...
