The Analytical Chemistry Springboard
- Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center
The Berkeley Sensor & Actuator Center (BSAC) is a NSF/Industry/University cooperative research center funded by the National Science Foundation and a consortium of corporations and government agencies. Since its foundation in 1986, BSAC has been devoted to research on sensors and miniature moving mechanical elements or MEMS (MicroElectro Mechanical Systems) that take advantage of the remarkable progress made in integrated-circuit technology.
- Electronic Noses and Their Applications
A full paper on the title subject written by Paul E. Keller et al. of the Pacific Northwest National Laboratory, Environmental Molecular Sciences Lab.
- Environmental Measurement Technology
The environmental measurement technology group, which is part of the Department of Measurement Engineering, located at the Technical University of Hamburg-Harburg is a team of electrical engineers, physicists, chemical engineers and chemists. The environmental measurement group is envolved with the research and development of new measuring methods in environmental analysis, mainly on gas chromatography coupled to mass spectrometers and on sensor arrays.
- Micromechanics Transducer Group
The micromechanical transducers group conducts research on device physics, system and device simulation and fabrication technology of miniature mechnical devices. These are made by micromachining:photolithography (wet and dry), isotropic and anisotropic etching, wafer bonding and thin film deposition. Silicon and thin-film materials form the basic materials used. The devices are used as mechanical sensors which measure force, pressure, impact and fluid flow and in actuators and passive structures.
- Radiation Dosimetry by use of MRI
As some chemical configurations are found to change in color after irradiation, one can think of chemical reactions that will have an effect on NMR-parameters. This might open new horizons for the three dimensional mapping of radiation dose distributions produced by a linear accelerator in a clinical environment. As such it results in a new powerfull tool during treatment planning.
- Sensor Technology at the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory
The Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory has developed an impressive array of technologies. One such technology is the keystone to a Laboratory core competency in sensors. It is the goal of this report on sensors and sensor technologies to provide a brief glimpse of select sensor efforts and to promote the dissemination of information regarding the activities in this renowned core competency.
- Sensors, Microstructures, and Actuators Working Group
SMAWG is an independent professional organization welcoming participants from academia, industry, and [US] government.
- Surface Plasmon Resonance
SPR is a relatively new technique in the field of chemical and biochemical sensing. SPR has been applied in the development of gas sensors, measurement of optical properties of metals, degradation monitoring of metals, microscopy, and biosensing. This link points to the Sensors section of the Virginia Tech Chemistry Hypermedia Project.
