About this book

This book provides a comprehensive overview of the current state-of-art in oxide nanostructures, carbon nanostructures and 2D materials fabrication. It covers mimicking of sensing mechanisms and applications in gas sensors. It focuses on gas sensors based on functional nanostructured materials, especially related to issues of sensitivity, selectivity, and temperature dependency for sensors. It covers synthesis, properties, and current gas sensing tools and discusses the necessity for miniaturized sensors. This book will be of use to senior undergraduate and graduate students, professionals, and researchers in the field of solid-state physics, materials science, surface science and chemical engineering.

About the authors

Sabu Thomas is currently Professor and Pro-Vice Chancellor at Mahatma Gandhi University, Kerala, India, in addition to being the founder director of the International and Inter University Centre for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology. After his B.Tech. in Polymer Science and Rubber Technology from the University of Cochin, he pursued his Ph.D. from Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur. Prof. Thomas has received many national and international awards, including Fellowship of the Royal Society of Chemistry, MRSI award, SESR award, Dr. APJ Abdul Kalam Award for Scientific Excellence, an honorary degree by Université de Lorraine, and multiple fellowships by prestigious societies and universities. Prof. Thomas' research has spanned many areas of nanocomposite and polymer science and engineering, and he has edited more than 70 books, holds 5 patents and has authored over 750 research publications. 

Niravkumar Joshi is currently a FAPESP postdoctoral fellow at the University of Sao Paulo, Brazil. He completed his M.S. and Ph.D. in Applied Physics at Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, after which he joined as a Research Associate at Bhabha Atomic Research Centre, India with joint collaboration with Paris University, France. He has postdoctoral experience from South Korea, Brazil and United States, having most recently completed his tenure at University of California Berkeley, USA where he developed selective and sensitive microsensor by MEMS techniques. His present research focuses on synthesis and characterization of oxide nanostructures and 2D material-based gas sensors. He has authored more than 20 international research papers and 3 book chapters. 

Vijay Kumar is currently working as Fulbright-Nehru Postdoctoral fellow in Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center, University of California, Berkeley, USA, where he is exploring the insights of ordered mesoporous hybrid materials for novel humidity/gas sensing applications. He received his Ph.D. in Materials Science and Nanotechnology from D.C.R. University of Science & Technology, India, after which he worked with the Institute of Nano Science & Technology, Punjab, India and the University of Kiel, Germany. Dr. Kumar has authored more than 50 international research papers and 11 book chapters.
