Abstract: For modeling sensory properties, tin dioxide SnO2 was used as the working layer. The paper presented the main possible conduction mechanisms and their computer analysis. Based on the results obtained by using of the model with only one contact between two particles, we concluded that the reduction of the contact area between SnO2 particles less than 30 nm can significantly improve the sensor sensitivity to dangerous gases.
Keywords: semiconductor, computer modeling, nanocompacted material, gas sensor.
