Thin Film Deposition Method for Sensor Manufacturing



Laboratory: Los Alamos National Laboratory (LANL)

Overview: Scientists at LANL have developed an innovative method for gas sensor manufacturing using a thin film deposition. The thin film requires very little material, and can be applied in high throughput applications. The gas sensor market is highly competitive. LANL’s thin film deposition method for manufacturing gas sensors decreases manufacturing time and costs, while increasing consistency and quality. With the use of thin film deposition, gas sensor manufacturers can offer a higher quality product at a very competitive price.


  • Decreases production time
  • Increases quality
  • Decreases costs
  • Simplifies the manufacturing process
  • Allows application of tape casting method

Potential Applications: This technology may be useful for gas sensor manufacturing -

  • Carbon monoxide
  • Hydrocarbon
  • NOx/ammonia
  • Any gas sensor with two electrodes and an electrolyte

Opportunity: Available for licensing
