	%X Vertical ZnO nanowire array films were synthesized
based on aqueous method for sensing applications. ZnO nanowires
were investigated structurally using X-ray diffraction (XRD) and
scanning electron microscopy (SEM). The gas-sensing properties of
ZnO nanowires array films are studied. It is found that the ZnO
nanowires array film sensor exhibits excellent sensing properties
towards O2 and CO2 at 100 °C with the response time shorter than 5
s. High surface area / volume ratio of vertical ZnO nanowire and high
mobility accounts for the fast response and recovery. The sensor
response was measured in the range from 100 to 500 ppm O2 and CO2
in this study.
