The activity will be focused on the preparation of metal oxides nanowires and heterojunctions, and the

characterization of their morphological, structural and functional properties for sensing applications. The

nanostructures will be mainly prepared by means of evaporation and condensation, sputtering and thermal

evaporation techniques.

Prepared materials will be characterized from morphological point-of-view thanks to electron microscopy,

confirm the morphology of the nanostructures. Moreover, materials will be characterized by using

spectroscopic techniques, to verify the reproducibility of the growth process and materials crystallinity.

Sensors will be prepared and functionally characterized by volt-amperometric techniques, in order to study

the properties of the metal-semiconductor junction, including the electrical properties in a controlled

atmosphere by introducing a known concentration of gas and studying the effects of interfering gases.
