When the sensor is heated to a controlled temperature in the absence of oxygen, free electrons flow easily through tile grain boundaries of the tin dioxide particles.
When the sensor is exposed to a person's breath that contains alcohol, the tin dioxide surface absorbs the gas molecules and causes oxidation.
The model structures of Sn[O.sub.2]NRs were generated by cutting an Sn[O.sub.2]NS (tin dioxide nanosheets) along armchair and zigzag orientations, which are referred to as zigzag Sn[O.sub.2] nanoribbons (Z-Sn[O.sub.2]NRs) and armchair Sn[O.sub.2] nanoribbons (A-Sn[O.sub.2]NRs), as shown in Figure 1.

"In this research, nanocomposites consisted of functionalized carbon nanotubes and tin dioxide
nanoparticles were synthesized through sonochemical and chemical vapor deposition (CVD) methods," Sadeq Ahmadnia Feyzabad, one of the researchers of the plan, explained.
The sprayed droplets are then directed by an air stream into an electric furnace (with temperature of 1100oC)."In the instant research work, nano and meso porous nanostructures of molybdenum oxide-doped tin dioxide
have been synthesized through ultrasonic spray pyrolysis.
Then come papers on magnetic, dielectric, mechanical, and light induced relaxation phenomena, followed by a section on other relaxation phenomena such as inelastic relaxation of tin dioxide
thin films and relaxation of highly non equilibrium charge carriers in crystals by low-energy electron influence, to cite two of six examples.
