Abstract

The ZnO-SnO2 core-shell nanowires (NWs) were synthesized by a continuous two-step vapor growth method at different synthesis temperatures. A crystalline 15-20 nm-thick, SnO2 shell layer was pseudo-epitaxially coated on ZnO NWs with a diameter of 50-80 nm. The gas response of the ZnO-SnO2 core-shell NW sensor to 10 ppm NO2 reached ∼33 times enhancement compared to that of the ZnO NWs at 200 °C. In addition, the ZnO-SnO2 core-shell NW sensors showed selective detection to NO2 at 200-300 °C and to C2H 5OH at 400 °C. The enhanced gas responses to NO2 and C2H5OH are discussed in relation to the thin SnO 2 shell layer and core-shell configuration of the NWs.
