Abstract

Nano- and micro-structured SnO2 has been widely utilized as gas sensors. These SnO2 based gas sensors are often made by chemical etching, vapor deposition or lithography. Here we report a facile and vacuum-free technique to fabricate large area one-dimensional periodic SnO2 nano arrays using surface relief grating created on azobenzene functionalized polymer thin films as template. Atomic force microscopy, scanning electron microscopy and energy dispersive X-ray spectroscopy characterizations confirmed the successful fabrication of SnO2 nano arrays. The fabricated SnO2 structure exhibited the same periodicity as the template with a width of a few hundred nanometers.
