ZnO is an excellent material for many applications such as UV emitters, gas sensors, transparent conductors, piezoelectric transducers, etc. The focused ion beam (FIB) technique, on the other hand, is an excellent fabrication tool for nanodevices. In this issue's Inside Back Cover article (pp. 1628–1632), Lee Chow, Oleg Lupan, and Guangyu Chai report on the development of an innovative technique using FIB to fabricate ZnO tetrapods and ZnO micro-cross gas sensors and UV sensors. It is shown that ZnO tetrapod sensors can be used to detect minute amounts of hydrogen and other gases.
