Electronic Nose Prototype Created for Toxins, Warfare

Nosang Myung, a professor at the University of California, Riverside, has developed an “electronic nose” prototype. Potential applications include detecting pesticide levels, gas leaks or combustion emissions on industrial sites, warning systems for bio-terrorism and chemical warfare agents in military scenarios.

Nano Engineered Applications, Inc. built the nose based on intellectual property licensed from the University of California. Nano is currently concentrating on writing device software and making the prototype a smaller size.

The prototype is centered on the nanosensor array that Myung started developing eight years ago. It uses functionalized carbon nanotubes 100,000 times finer than human hair to detect airborne toxins.

The unit will be integrated into three platforms: a handheld device, a wearable device and in a smartphone. The product is expected to begin selling within one year.
