Abstract: Interest in nanowires of metal oxide oxides has been exponentially growing in the last years, due to the attracting potential of application in electronic, optical and sensor field. We have focused our attention on the sensing properties of semiconducting nanowires as conductometric and optical gas sensors. Single crystal nanostructures In2O3, SnO 2, and ZnO were synthesized to explore and study their capability in form of multi-nanowires sensors.
