Title: Photoexcited ZnO nanoparticles with controlled defects as a highly sensitive oxygen sensor

Abstract

Conductance of photoexcited ZnO nanoparticles with various defects has been investigated in oxygen. ZnO nanoparticles, which show strong photoluminescence peaks originating from interstitial zinc atom (Zn{sub i}) and singly charged oxygen vacancy (V{sub O}{sup +}), show oxygen-pressure-dependent conductance changes caused by photoexcitation. Herein, a model is proposed to simulate the conductance changes.
