Pt/SnO2 nanowires/SiC based metal-oxidesemiconductor (MOS) devices were fabricated and tested for their gas sensitivity towards hydrogen. Tin oxide (SnO2) nanowires were grown on SiC substrates by the vapour liquid solid growth process. The material properties of the SnO2 nanowires such as its formation and dimensions were analyzed using scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The currentvoltage (I-V) characteristics at different hydrogen concentrations are presented. The effective change in the barrier height for 0.06 and 1% hydrogen were found to be 20.78 and 131.59 meV, respectively. A voltage shift of 310 mV at 530°C for 1% hydrogen was measured.

Citation counts are 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.
