AbstractApplied Nanotech Inc. proposes a miniaturized, low power, rapid responsive CO sensor based on molybdenum oxide nanoparticle networks applied to a thin-film transistor architecture. This sensor will be designed as a low maintenance detector for CO levels in air vehicles. Molybdenum oxide is an n-type semiconductor that shows an increase in conductance due to the oxidation of CO. The thin-film transistor architecture creates a selective, sensitive approach providing considerable improvement over the most successful commercial technology of CO detectors.
