Nanosensor Enhances Bomb Detection

Facebook Twitter LinkedIn Email Comments
A new plasmon laser sensor can identify extremely minute concentrations of explosives, as well as explosives that are typically difficult to detect. “Optical explosive sensors are very sensitive and compact,” said Dr. Xiang Zhang of the University of California, Berkeley, whose team developed the system. “The ability to magnify such a small trace of an explosive to create a detectable signal is a major development in plasmon sensor technology, which is one of the most powerful tools we have today.” The sensor consists of a 50-nm cadmium sulfide...Read full article
