ZnO/ZnS core-shell structures were hydrothermally grown on SiO2 substrates functioning as hydrogen gas sensing chips. Results indicate that a core-shell structure with an appropriate sulfurization period of 10 min had better H2 sensing performance than those of all other growth conditions. Furthermore, multiple material characterizations revealed that ZnS with a growth time of 10 min could form high-quality and good-adherent ZnS powders with moderate thickness attached to the ZnO nanorods. Because of their small size, portability, simple fabrication and high sensitivity, ZnO/ZnS core-shell based H2 gas sensors show promise for future H2 detecting applications.
