Abstract

Alcohol intake may impair human abilities, degrade human performance, and result in serious diseases. Alcohol sensors are needed to manage the risk and effect of alcohol use to human health and performance. This paper was focused on the theoretical models and design of carbon nanotube based alcohol sensors. The experiments verified that single-walled carbon nanotubes can be used to detect alcohol vapor, and need metal pads to achieve higher sensitivity.
