Highly sensitive gas sensors were fabricated using nanostructured titania pad arrays. Nanostructured titania (NST) formed is sponge-like consisting of interconnected nanoscale wires and walls, which are made up of anatase nanocrystals. Electrical characterization indicates that contacts were ohmic and NST was highly sensitive to O2. Variations of hundreds of oxygen molecules over a 20 μm NST square pad sensing element were detected at 250 °C. The NST-based sensor operates at lower temperatures, has fast response time, and superior sensitivity relative to oxygen sensors based on porous undoped titania reported in the literature.
