We fabricated Pd-SnO2 clustered nanoparticles, a material that is highly sensitive to VOC gas, on a microsensor device with a double-pulse-driven mode. This mode was involved in switching the heater-on periods at high-temperature preheating and measurement phases and the rest phase during a heater-off period between preheating and measurement phases. The electrical resistance in synthetic air and the sensor response to toluene increased as preheating temperatures increased because of an increase in the amount of O2– adsorbed on the particle surface. In addition, extending the rest time between the preheating and measurement phases significantly improved the sensor response to toluene. According to the relationship between the sensor response and toluene concentration, we improved the lower detection limit for toluene gas to below 10 ppt, with preheating and measurement temperatures at 400 and 250 °C, respectively, and rest time at 100 s. Therefore, the combination of the material and sensor-driven designs may play a key role in improving the sensor performance..

Koichi Suematsu, Tokiharu Oyama, Wataru Mizukami, Yuki HIroyama, Ken Watanabe, Kengo Shimanoe, Selective Detection of Toluene Using Pulse-Driven SnO2 Micro Gas Sensors, ACS Applied Electronic Materials, 2, 2913-2920, 2020.08, Improvement of gas selectivity, especially among volatile organic compound (VOC) gases, was attempted by introducing pulse-driven modes in semiconductor gas sensors. The SnO2 microsensor was fabricated on a miniature sensor device constructed with a microheater and electrode. The gas-sensing properties were evaluated under a pulse-driven mode by switching the heater on and off. According to density functional theory calculations and temperature-programmed reaction measurements, toluene molecule, which is one of the VOC gases, was adsorbed on the SnO2 surface by van der Waals forces. The conventional sensor response, Se, defined as the change in the electrical resistance in air and target gas atmosphere, to toluene was four and eight times greater than that to CO and H2, respectively. Moreover, the newly proposed sensor response, Sp, defined as the change in the electrical resistance of the device in the target gas atmosphere during the heater-on period, to toluene was 33 and 29 times greater than that to CO and H2, respectively. This significant difference in the Sp to toluene was caused by the combustion reaction of condensed toluene within the sensing layer. Accordingly, the pulse-driven mode of the semiconductor gas sensor can be exploited to improve the gas selectivity of VOC gases based on these newly defined sensor response measures..

Yongjiao Sun, Zhenting Zhao, Koichi Suematsu, Pengwei Li, Zhichao Yu, Wendong Zhang, Jie Hu, Kengo Shimanoe, Rapid and Stable Detection of Carbon Monoxide in Changing Humidity Atmospheres Using Clustered In2O3/CuO Nanospheres, ACS sensors, 10.1021/acssensors.9b02557, 5, 4, 1040-1049, 2020.04, Clustered indium oxide/copper oxide (In2O3/CuO) nanospheres with different CuO amounts were successfully synthesized as sensing materials for the carbon monoxide (CO) detection. Component and morphological characterizations were performed by X-ray diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), and X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS). Sensing performance for CO of the clustered In2O3 and In2O3/CuO nanospheres were investigated under different temperatures and humidity conditions. The results show that the sensors based on 2 mol % In2O3/CuO (InCu2) exhibit about threefold improvement in response to CO compared to that of In2O3 with quick response and recovery time, wide linearity, and low detection limit at 200 °C under 25% relative humidity (RH). Moreover, it shows tiny resistance and response declines despite the wide range of humidity variation from 25 to 95% RH. Meanwhile, the mechanism of enhanced gas-sensing performances and antihumidity properties of InCu2 were systematically investigated. We speculated that most of the water-driven species are predominantly adsorbed by CuO due to its high affinity to the hydroxyl group, which suppresses the interaction between moisture and In2O3. InCu2 is a new and promising material to sense CO in a highly sensitive and fast manner with negligible interference from ambient humidity..

17. Shingo Ide, Hiroki Takahashi, Isamu Yashima, Koichi Suematsu, Ken Watanabe, Kengo Shimanoe, Effect of Boron Substitution on Oxide-Ion Conduction in c-Axis-Oriented Apatite-Type Lanthanum Silicate, Journal of Physical Chemistry C, 10.1021/acs.jpcc.9b11454, 124, 5, 2879-2885, 2020.02, Apatite-type lanthanum silicate (LSO) is a material with high oxide-ion conductivity in the low- and intermediateerature range (573-873 K) and is, therefore, a promising solid electrolyte for lowerature applications such as solid oxide fuel cells and oxygen sensors. Herein, the effect of B substitution at the Si site in a c-axis-oriented apatite-type lanthanum silicate (La9.7Si5.3B0.7O26.2, c-LSBO) polycrystal on oxide-ion conduction is investigated. A highly c-axis-oriented LSBO polycrystal is fabricated by a vapor-solid reaction in which a dense La2SiO5 disk is heated in B2O3 vapor at ≥1673 K. The oxide-ion conductivity of c-LSBO reaches 16 mS cm-1 at 678 K with an activation energy of 0.4 eV. The obtained oxide-ion conductivity of c-LSBO is approximately 190 times higher than that of yttria-stabilized zirconia and 5.8 times higher than that of the polycrystalline c-axis-oriented nondoped lanthanum silicate. Based on 11B nuclear magnetic resonance measurements, B is located at the SiO4 site as BO4, suggesting the formation of an oxygen vacancy at the O4 site located along the c-axis due to charge compensation. In addition, molecular dynamics simulations indicate that the oxide-ion diffusion coefficient of the B-doped LSO is higher than that of the nondoped LSO. The high oxide-ion conductivity of c-LSBO is likely attributable to the formation of an oxygen vacancy at the O4 site by B doping, which has a lower valency than Si. Therefore, c-LSBO is a promising candidate as a solid electrolyte in electrochemical devices operating at low and moderately high temperatures..

21. Koichi Suematsu, Ken Watanabe, Masayoshi Yuasa, Tetsuya Kida, Kengo Shimanoe, Effect of Ambient Oxygen Partial Pressure on the Hydrogen Response of SnO2 Semiconductor Gas Sensors, Journal of the Electrochemical Society, 10.1149/2.1391906jes, 166, B618-B622, 2019.04, In this study, the influence of the oxygen partial pressures (PO2) on the sensor response to H2 of SnO2 resistive-type gas sensors was evaluated under various humid atmospheres. SnO2 nanoparticles of 8–15 nm in diameter were synthesized using a hydrothermal technique followed by calcination at 600°C. Additionally, a large amount of pores with diameters greater than 10 nm was confirmed in the nanoparticles. The electrical resistance at 350°C was decreased with decreasing the PO2, and the electrical resistance in the presence of 10 ppm H2 was much smaller than that in the absence of H2 in both dry and humid atmospheres regardless of the PO2. Furthermore, the sensor response to 10 ppm H2 at 350°C increased with decreasing PO2 in both dry and humid atmospheres. Thus, decreasing the amount of oxygen adsorption enhanced the effect of rooted hydroxyl formation on the SnO2 surface through a combustion reaction between H2 and adsorbed oxygen and improved the sensor response to H2. These results are important for understanding the fundamental mechanisms of gas detection and for the material surface design of highly sensitive resistive-type semiconductor gas sensors..

24. Koichi Suematsu, Wataru Harano, Tokiharu Oyama, Yuka Shin, Ken Watanabe, Kengo Shimanoe, Pulse-Driven Semiconductor Gas Sensors Toward ppt Level Toluene Detection, Analytical Chemistry, 2018.08, Improvements in the responses of semiconductor gas sensors and reductions in their detection limits toward volatile organic compounds (VOCs) are required in order to facilitate the simple detection of diseases, such as cancer, through human-breath analysis. In this study, we introduce a heater-switching, pulse-driven, micro gas sensor composed of a microheater and a sensor electrode fabricated with Pd-SnO2-clustered nanoparticles as the sensing material. The sensor was repeatedly heated and allowed to cool by the application of voltage to the microheater; the VOC gases penetrate into the interior of the sensing layer during its unheated state. Consequently, the utility factor of the pulse-driven sensor was greater than that of a conventional, continuously heated sensor. As a result, the response of the sensor to toluene was enhanced; indeed, the sensor responded to toluene at levels of 1 ppb. In addition, according to the relationship between its response and concentration of toluene, the pulse-driven sensor in this report can detect toluene at concentrations of 200 ppt and even lower. Therefore, the combination of a pulse-driven microheater and a suitable material designed to detect toluene resulted in improved sensor response, and facilitated ppt-level toluene detection. This sensor may play a key role in the development of medical diagnoses based on human breath..

Koichi Suematsu, Masashi Arimura, Naoyuki Uchiyama, Shingo Saita, Transparent BaTiO3/PMMA Nanocomposite Films for Display Technologies: Facile Surface Modification Approach for BaTiO3 Nanoparticles, ACS Applied Nano Materials, 1, 2430-2437, 2018.04, Fabrication of a transparent film composed of a barium titanate (BaTiO3) and poly(methyl methacrylate) (PMMA) matrix is reported to expand the application field for composite films such as displays and touch panel screens. BaTiO3 nanoparticles are synthesized by sol–gel route with dispersion carried out in 2-methoxyethanol. The synthesized nanoparticles are 10 nm in size and are highly dispersed in the solvent. The surfaces of the obtained nanoparticles are modified by treatment with titanium isopropoxide and by using two silane coupling agents: n-decyltrimethoxysilane and 3-(triethoxysilyl)propyl methacrylate. The surface-modified BaTiO3 nanoparticles were then added to a sample of methyl methacrylate to obtain a transparent BaTiO3 dispersion. Transparent BaTiO3/PMMA nanocomposite films (sheet type, thickness of 150 μm) are obtained by the polymerization of the BaTiO3/MMA dispersion via heat treatment and by using a polymerization initiator. The visual transparency of the BaTiO3/PMMA film is comparable to that of the original PMMA film. Additionally, no difference in the transparency of the BaTiO3/PMMA films is observed when the BaTiO3 weight ratio is varied between 5% and 33%. The dielectric constant of the nanocomposite film improved from 4.6 (PMMA only) to 7.1 by incorporating 10 wt % of BaTiO3. Such improvement in the dielectric properties, while maintaining the transparency, flexibility, and workability of PMMA films, allows the expansion of the fields of functional ceramics and polymers..

Koichi Suematsu, Kosuke Watanabe, Akihiro Tou, Yonjiao Sun, Kengo Shimanoe, Ultraselective Toluene Gas Sensor: Nanosized Gold Loaded on Zinc Oxide Nanoparticles, Analytical Chemistry, 90, 1959-1966, 2018.01, Selectivity is an important parameter of resistivetype gas sensors that use metal oxides. In this study, a highly selective toluene sensor is prepared using highly dispersed goldnanoparticle-loaded zinc oxide nanoparticles (Au-ZnO NPs). Au-ZnO NPs are synthesized by coprecipitation and calcination at 400 °C with Au loadings of 0.15, 0.5, and 1.5 mol %. The Au NPs on ZnO are about 2−4 nm in size, and exist in a metallic state. Porous gas-sensing layers are fabricated by screen printing. The responses of the sensor to 200 ppm hydrogen, 200 ppm carbon monoxide, 100 ppm ethanol, 100 ppm acetaldehyde, 100 ppm acetone, and 100 ppm toluene are evaluated at 377 °C in a dry atmosphere. The sensor response of 0.15 mol % Au-ZnO NPs to toluene is about 92, whereas its sensor responses to other combustible gases are less than 7. Such selective toluene detection is probably caused by the utilization efficiency of the gas-sensing layer. Gas diffusivity into the sensing layer of Au-ZnO NPs is lowered by the catalytic oxidation of combustible gases during their diffusion through the layer. The present approach is an effective way to improve the selectivity of resistive-type gas sensors..

Koichi Suematsu, Miyuki Sasaki, Nan Ma, Masayoshi Yuasa, Kengo Shimanoe, Antimony-doped tin dioxide gas sensors exhibiting high stability of the sensitivity to humidity changes, ACS Sensors, 10.1021/acssensors.6b00323, 1, 913-920, 2016.06, The type and amounts of oxygen adsorption species at various atmospheric humidity levels are important factors in improving the sensitivity to combustible gases and stability to humidity changes of SnO2-based resistive-type gas sensors. We investigated the effect of antimony (Sb) doping of SnO2 nanoparticles on the stability of the sensitivity to humidity changes and oxygen adsorption species under humid atmosphere. No significant degradation of the sensitivity to hydrogen of Sb-SnO2 sensors was observed between 16 and 96 RH%, while an undoped SnO2 sensor showed gradually ecreasing responses with increasing humidity. An evaluation of oxygen adsorption species under humid atmosphere showed a transition from O2− to O− with increasing humidity from 16 to 96 RH%. However, the O2− adsorption sites were maintained on the surfaces of the Sb- SnO2, even as the humidity increased. Moreover, the extent of oxygen adsorption on the Sb-SnO2 was not obviously changed with increasing humidity. These results indicate that Sb atoms function as hydroxyl absorbers and also generate O2− adsorption sites in their vicinity. Additionally, Pd loading on the Sb-SnO2 further enhanced the sensor response under humid atmosphere, while maintaining the stability to humidity changes. Therefore, we successfully imparted stability to the sensitivity of SnO2 nanoparticles during humidity changes, representing an important improvement with applications to the development of high performance, practical, resistive-type gas sensors..
