Ultra-sensitive molecular detection of explosives

Abstract:

Explosives detection plays an important role in both military and civilian applications. However, the detection of explosive vapours remains challenging because of the low vapour pressures of explosive materials. The aim of this project is to develop a system for the ultra-sensitive molecular detection of explosives. The sensor is based on a percolation network of conductive polymers, supported on a scaffold of gold nanoparticles. By operating the sensor at the percolation threshold a high...
