Scientists and engineers are collaborating across disciplines to develop and network miniaturized intelligent nanosensors that can rapidly and remotely detect change in their surroundings. These sensors have a wide range of potential applications: environmental, medical, military and transportation. This workshop will focus on revealing the chemistry and physics behind the creation and application of these sensors.
Canadian researchers are testing a new device that may soon detect flu viruses circulating at malls or airports and warn people about them. The sensor is designed to detect a specific strain of flu virus, such as the new strain of swine flu, or influenza A (H1N1), as well as measure its concentration in the air. It is being developed by physicist Luc Beaulieu and his team at Memorial University in St. John's, N.L.
Chemical sensors printed directly on elastic underwear waistbands retained their sensing abilities even after engineers stretched, folded and pulled at the chemical-sensing printable electrodes -- sensors that could one day be incorporated into intelligent "hospital-on-a-chip" systems. This work, funded by the U.S. Office of Naval Research, is led by professor Joseph Wang, from the Department of NanoEngineering at the University of California, San Diego Jacobs School of Engineering.
