Sub-ppm NO2 sensing in temperature cycled mode with Ga doped ZnO thin films deposited by RF sputtering

Abstract : In this work Ga doped ZnO thin films have been deposited by RF magnetron sputtering onto a silicon micro-hotplate and their structural, microstructural and gas sensing properties have been studied. ZnO:Ga thin film with a thickness of 90 nm has been deposited onto a silicon based micro-hotplates without any photolithography process thanks to a low cost and reliable stencil mask process. Sub-ppm sensing (500 ppb) of NO2 gas at low temperature (50 °C) has been obtained with promising responses R/R0 up to 18. Micro-hotplates have been prepared using photolithographic process. The system is composed by a heating element and sensing electrodes. They are both integrated in membrane in order to have a localized heating and sensing spot onto which the sensitive thin film is deposited. The microhotplates can operate with low consumption and can heat up to 500 °C with a good stability. This system has been already published in [1]. The use of lift-off process to restrict the deposition of the thin film onto central electrodes can lead to the dissolution and/or contamination of the sensitive layer. That's why the photolithographic method was avoided and a stencil mask process was used.
