Paper Abstract

A new sensor system, whose functionality is not reliant on mass spectrometric or ionization methods, is combined with a substrate technology which allows for separately optimized control circuits and standardized advanced sensors in a simple packaging methodology to foster an entirely new generation of modular optical sensors. These sensors will be based on biologic and chromic compounds. The compounds will utilize reversible reaction chemistry to enable self cleaning. The detector's operation is based on simple changes in absorbance, reflectance, color, or other optical properties. The time to saturation of the sensor will determine the relative concentration in the air. A detection scheme based on these properties will function in high background levels and also be able to pick up low level concentrations as well.
