"Nanotechnology Solutions for Asymmetric Vapor Trace Detection: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Smell the Bomb" by Dr. Vladimir Dobrokhotov
Development of the applied sciences in many ways is determined by our ability to simulate and improve human senses. From simple light sensors to cutting-edge cameras, sensors that replicate vision are well-known. Microphones that translate sound vibrations into electrical pulses are so common place that we take them for granted. Capacitive touch sensors, accelerometers and similar devices have made possible the technology from touch screens to your favorite video game controller. What about smell? How do animals and humans achieve the sense of smell and what sensors are available to help us simulate or improve this sense? The advancement of nanowire and nanoparticle manufacturing has enabled many developments in the area of chemical sensors and their ability to detect and characterize molecules present in the environment around us. Learn about the unique electrical properties of these devices and explore potential uses ranging from the detection of disease to explosive identification.
We'll begin the meeting as always with show & tell. So, bring what you've been working on and tell everyone about it.
Need help with your project? Bring it and ask for help.
Food & drinks will be served at 6PM thanks to Synergy Systems. Show & Tell and the presentation will start no later than 6:30.
Come join the fun and invite your friends!
