Abstract

The invention relates to the field of sensors for detecting volatile compounds. The sensor of the present invention for detecting volatile compounds comprises: a film of metal oxide; a heater configured to provide heat energy to the film of metal oxide, and/or a UV light configured to irradiate the film of metal oxide; an electrical conductivity meter configured to measure the electrical conductivity of the film of metal oxide; and a photometer configured to measure cataluminescence derived from an interaction between a volatile compound and the film of metal oxide.
