    Abstract

    Gas sensing properties of nanostructured pure and iron-doped WO3 thin films are discussed. Electron beam evaporation technique has been used to obtain nanostructured thin films of WO3 and WO3:Fe with small grain size and porosity. Atomic force microscopy has been employed to study the microstructure. High sensitivity of both films towards NO2 is observed. Doping of the tungsten oxide film with Fe decreased the material resistance by a factor of about 30 when exposed to 5 ppm NO2. The high sensitivity is attributed to an improved microstructure of the films obtained through e-beam evaporation technique, and subsequent annealing at 300oC for 1 hour.

    Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

    These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
