Researchers develop 'electronic nose'
RIVERSIDE – (INT) – Researchers at UC Riverside have developed an “electronic nose” that can detect small quantities of harmful airborne substances.
Professor Nosang Myung discussed the basis of his research at his laboratory.
“We create different types of nano-engineering material that is applied to potential applications which has a sensor with thermo-electric and solar cell to recover the energy.”
The ‘electronic nose’ can detect pesticide levels, gas leaks, combustion emissions, chemical warfare agents and can be used by homeland security warning systems for bio-terrorism.
