1. Sensors

Our microporous thin-films can be cast on supports for a variety of gas and liquid sensor applications. We worked with Prof. Craig Grimes on magnetoelastic sensors for the detection of ethylene, a plant ripening hormone. In this application, films adsorb ethylene changing the weight of the film which in turn is registered as a change in the magnetoelastic properties of the device. Currently, we are developing sensors for detecting the presence of trace inorganic analytes in water.
