The effects of additives on the methane gas sensing performance of printed indium tin oxide (ITO) sensor have been investigated. Room temperature sensing has been achieved under the methane flow of 100 ppm. Sensitivity and response speed of the printed ITO sensor has been greatly improved. The most advanced performance has been achieved from the ITO+(Ag, CNT) sensor. Ag and CNT co-incorporation results in 652-times large sensitivity and 88% fast response time in compare to the pure ITO sensor under the same test conditions.
