A simple and effective solution route for synthesizing colloidal indium oxide (In2O3) nanocrystallites, i.e. laser ablation in liquid (LAL), is reported. The morphology and chemical structure of the as-prepared samples were analyzed by scanning electron microscopy (SEM), transmission electron microscopy (TEM), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and X-ray photoelectron spectra (XPS). The results showed the formation of In 2O3 nanoparticles with a bimodal distribution, consisting mainly of particles of small diameters (2-5 nm). Sensor devices prepared by spraying directly the LAL colloidal solutions on interdigitated alumina substrates exhibited good sensing properties for the detection of CO at very low concentrations.
