The variations of surface morphologies, crystallographic orientations and crystallinity with the WO3 thin film growing methods thermal evaporation and DC sputtering methods were investigated by using scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and X-ray diffraction(XRD) analysis. As a result of sensitivity (Rgas/Rair) measurements for the 5 ppm NO2 test gas, the sensitivity values were 113 for the sputtered films and 93 for the evaporated films. It was also observed that the recovery rate of a sensing signal after measuring sensitivity was faster in the sputtered films than in the evaporated films.
