Development of Odor Sensor System for Security

Research Project Outline

In the present study, we aim at the development of an ultra supersensitive odor sensor system for ppt (parts per trillion) level detection of explosives by combining a surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensor technology with antigen-antibody reaction and an electrode polarization controlling sensor which utilizes a molecular imprinting method. The sensor network system can be adapted to security of airport and railroad, detection of explosives on police work, quality control of foods and water. The sensor system contributes to realize safety and security of society.
