ZnO nanorod/wire is a nanomaterial that possessing high surface area to volume ratio and excellent optical and electrical properties, indicating its promising sensing capabilities in various applications. Here, we present the research work of ZnO nanorod/wire based sensors carried out in our lab, which were used in the optical, electrical and mechanical sensing areas, respectively. In optical sensing, a ZnO nanorod array was fabricated at the endface of an optical fiber, forming a sensing probe, whose interference spectrum shifts upon the exposure to gas analyte. In electrical sensing, the ZnO nanowires decorated extended-gate field-effect transistor was used as a pH sensor, whose source-drain current changed dramatically under different pH values when applying the same gate voltage. Finally, regarding to the mechanical sensing, the ZnO nanorods were applied to the surface of the solidly mounted resonator for gas detecting, whose resonant frequency shifts due to the absorption of gas analytes.

Conference Presentations are recordings of oral presentations given at SPIE conferences and published as part of the proceedings. They include the speaker's narration with video of the slides and animations. Most include full-text papers. Interactive, searchable transcripts and closed captioning are now available for most presentations.
