Graphene for Room Temperature Gas Sensors [BPN772]
As air pollution from industrial and automobile emission becomes more and more severe,
the personalized, integrated gas sensor is desirable for everyone to monitor everyday's air
quality as well as their personal health condition non-invasively. Such sensor should have the
desirable features like energy efficient, miniature size, accurate response (down to ppm level),
and selectivity. Traditional bulk MOX based gas sensor works in the temperature range of 300 to
400 oC, which requires large amount of energy to power the heater. We here propose using graphene
based field effect transistor as label-free sensor platform, to detect gas selectively by
measuring its electrical properties at room temperature.
