Nanostructured TiO2 films and Au-TiO2 nanocomposite thin films prepared by sol-gel method have been deposited onto gold covered glass substrates and glass substrates in order to study their optical properties using Surface Plasmon Resonance and Optical Absorption measurements. Both techniques have been used to study the sensing features of both kind of films to different vapour organic compounds. A comparative study of the two techniques has allowed us to know the possible benefits than can be found when the sensing material is a nanocomposite thin film.
