The SnO 2 nanowire networks were grown on a laser-scribed Al 2O 3 substrate containing 16 sensor elements with Au electrodes and Pt heaters via a single step vapor phase reaction, and their gas sensing characteristics were studied. The sensor showed a high response to 5 ppm NO 2 (R g/R a = 1909, R g: resistance in gas, R a: resistance in air) at the sensor temperature of 141°C and high and selective responses to 100 ppm C 2H 5OH (R a/R g = 301.8-326.4) at 240 and 296°C, which demonstrated that high performance SnO 2 nanowire network gas sensors can be fabricated on a large scale through a facile and cost-effective route.
