Oxygen sensors are used to improve fuel efficiency and to control exhaust emissions in automobiles. The underlying principles, operation and design of two types of established oxygen sensors based on zirconia and titania are reviewed. Recent advances in sensor concepts to overcome the limitations of the zirconia and titania sensors are examined with special emphasis on sensors utilising oxygen pumping and thin film technology for operation at lean air/fuel ratios.
