Abstract

Oxide thin films of zinc and titanium materials were deposited by different deposition techniques, to be applied as sensitive layers of pH sensor – EGFET device. The deposition techniques tested were dip-coat, spin-coat, electrodeposition and spray-pyrolysis. The routine and the parameters of each technique were changed aiming optimized the procedures. The pHs buffer solutions tested ranged from 2 to 12. ZnO thin film shows sensitivity about 23 mV/pH, while TiO2 thin films shows only 13.8 mV/pH. The final purpose of this study is to optimize the parameters for each deposition technique for both oxide materials.
