In this work a novel flexible acetylene (C2H2) gas sensor based on Ag nanoparticles decorated vertical ZnO nanorods (Ag-ZnO NRs) on PI/PTFE substrate has been investigated. The grown structure was synthesized through a simple, rapid, and low-temperature hydrothermal-RF magnetron sputtering method. The successful immobilization of Ag nanoparticles (NPs) onto the surface of ZnO nanorods contributed large effective surface area and facilitated the charge transfer process. The as-fabricated sensor exhibited enhanced C2H2 sensing performances at low temperature (200°C) including a broad detection range (3 - 1000 ppm), and short recovery time (39 sec). Mechanical robustness and device flexibility were investigated at different curvature angle (0 - 90°) and several times bending-relaxing process (0 – 5 × 105 times). The sensor exhibited stable response magnitude with a negligible drift of ~ 2.1% for a maximum bending angle of 90o and a response drop of 8% after 5 × 104 bending/relaxing processes. The superior sensing features along with outstanding flexibility to extreme bending stress indicate the sensor a promising candidate for the development of practical flexible C2H2 gas sensors.
