+ - Real time trace vapour detector mimics dog nose to detect explosives->

Submitted by HagraBiscuit
HagraBiscuit (2756527) writes "From Phys.org
Researchers at UCSB, led by professors Carl Meinhart of mechanical engineering and Martin Moskovits of chemistry, have designed a detector that uses microfluidic nanotechnology to mimic the biological mechanism behind canine scent receptors. The device is both highly sensitive to trace amounts of certain vapor molecules, and able to tell a specific substance apart from similar molecules.
