Colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) have shown their advantages in gas-sensing applications due to their extremely small particle size and facile solution based processes. In this study, a high sensitivity of surface acoustic wave (SAW) NO2 sensor was demonstrated using SnS CQDs as the sensing layer. The delay line based SAW device with a resonant frequency of 200 MHz were fabricated on ST-cut quartz substrate. The SnS CQDs with average sizes of 5.0 nm were synthesized and deposited onto SAW sensors using a spin-coating method. The fabricated SAW sensor was capable of detecting a low concentration of NO2 gas at room temperature with a good efficiency and selectivity e.g., with a 1.8 kHz decrease of center frequency of the SAW delay line when exposed to 10 ppm NO2 at room temperature.
