Zinc oxide nanowires are integrated onto carbon microfibers using a two-step approach which includes electrochemical deposition of zinc and its thermal oxidation. Such nano-on-micro hybrid architecture is then used as resistive gas sensor. Some properties like mechanical flexibility, low cost and large-area fabrication make this design appealing for different applications. The huge surface-to-volume ratio of such structure comes from being structured at both microscale and nanoscale (ZnO nanowires and C microfiber) and leads to a strong and rapid response/recovery times when it is used as a gas sensor. The fabrication process of the ZnO-microC device is very simple and doesn't involve any expensive lithographic step. The sensors show excellent liquefied petroleum gas sensing properties, with very fast response on gas exposure (about 3 s) and very good reversibility (less than 2%). In addition, the carbon microfiber substrate allows the use of the ZnO-microC sensor also in applications where flexibility is required (for example integrated in fabric).
