Electronic nose (E-nose) is a simulation of human nose, which consists of a gas sensor array and an artificial intelligent algorithm. The gas sensing properties of semiconductor sensors are affected by the heating temperature. For most gases, there exists the optimum oxidation temperature. If sensor response is recorded, we can obtain the data with abundant information at different working temperatures. The selectivity and sensitivity of a gas sensor array are the bottleneck of its development. Dynamic temperature modulation sensing technique is a use of semiconductor sensor temperature modulation characteristics by modulating its heating voltage to realize the heating temperature in a range of changes, people can record the corresponding response. The temperature modulation sensing technique can effectively improve the sensitivity of E-nose and realize the detection of low concentration gas, so it is of great practical significance to development technique of E-nose, which is based on temperature modulated sensing system for promoting the detection speed. But so far, the technique is only used for the detection of several common gases (such as methanol, ethanol, carbon monoxide, et al). The aim of this review is to supply a summary of the development and significant achievements of dynamic temperature modulation sensing technique used in E-nose in recent years. We are also looking forward to seeing dynamic temperature modulation sensing technique to accomplish more breakthroughs and get more achievements.
