Thin-film combinatorial gas sensor libraries were fabricated based on doped semiconducting SnO2 thin films. The combinatorial pulsed-laser ablation technique was applied to deposit compositionally varying arrays of sensor elements onto a prepatterned device electrode configuration. The detection of chloroform, formaldehyde, and benzene gases was demonstrated at concentrations down to 12.5 ppm through pattern recognition of signals from the arrays of sensors.
