Abstract

Analyzing the concentration of acetone in human breath constitutes a promising non-invasive means to diagnose the onset of diabetes, with acetone levels of at least 1.8ppm typically associated to individuals suffering from diabetes. In this paper, we report the performance of a hierarchical ZnO nanostructure gas sensor for acetone detection. The fabricated gas sensor can detect concentrations as low as 1ppm while operating at a comparatively lower temperature of 200°C. In addition, the proposed gas sensor can be fabricated on a silicon wafer using a MEMS process, making it thereby possible to fully integrate gas sensing and electronic circuitry on a single silicon chip.
