CHAPTER 2

DESIRED PROPERTIES FOR SENSING MATERIALS

G. Korotcenkov

1. INTRODUCTION

The problem of optimization is a key factor in both design and manufacturing of electronic devices. In the case of either chemical sensors or solid-state gas sensors (GS), this problem has some specific peculiarities due to the absence of strict quantitative theory which would describe their operation. Some semiquantitative approaches can be found in the literature (Clifford 1983; Morrison 1987; Zemel 1988; Geistlinger 1993, 1994; Moseley et al. 1991; Brinzari et al. 2000; Barsan and Weimar 2001). However, since the number of physical and chemical parameters that characterize sensor properties is large, and some of these parameters are difficult to control, the ...
