Paper Title:
Synthesis and Characterization of Tin Oxide Nanoparticle for Humidity Sensor Applications
  Abstract

Tin oxide nanoparticle was successfully prepared by the chemical digestion method from the starting material as SnCl2. The SnO2 material was characterized by X-Ray Diffraction (XRD), Transmission Electron Microscope (TEM) and Selected Area Electron Diffraction (SAED). The SnO2 was an n-type material preferred to humidity sensing property towards the moisture. The response and recovery time of sensor was calculated as 129sec and 206sec respectively. It has exhibited better efficiency compared with the bulk SnO2 material. Additional Weight loss, EDS, FT-IR and resistivity measurements were also presented.
