‘Electronic nose’ could detect small quantities of harmful airborne substances

Researchers have developed an “electronic nose” prototype that can detect small quantities of harmful airborne substances. Based on research by Nosang Myung, a professor at the University of California, Riverside, Bourns College of Engineering, the device has potential applications in agriculture (detecting pesticide levels), industrial sites (detecting gas leaks, combustion emissions), homeland security (warning systems for bio-terrorism) and the military (detecting chemical … Continue reading ‘Electronic nose’ could detect small quantities of harmful airborne substances
