Research output: Contribution to journalArticle


Gases with different molecular sizes were successfully distinguished by the spatially controlled the LB films using fullerene molecules. By depositing the 200 layers of LB films with the spacer molecules using polyelectrolyte subphase, the quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) type gas sensors with high sensitivity and high durability for molecular size recognition were fabricated.
