Summary

Principles of detection of exhaust gas constituents by semiconducting materials with emphasis on oxygen sensing devices are discussed. The operation of these devices which involves a wide range of phenomena, is considered in the discussion of the TiO2 oxygen sensor and the thin film CO sensor. Finally, some of the materials requirements for resistive-type exhaust gas oxygen sensors are discussed.
