Microwave Radar System for Stand-off Hazardous Gas Detection and Material Characterization

This project will advance development of technologies capable of detecting rapidly and reliable a range of gases harmful to humans. Student interns working in university labs and with our partner will develop new gas sensors using new materials that resonate in observable ways when they come into contact with harmful gases. These sensors will be small and extremely durable, potentially worn on garments or attached to workers’ tools. Student interns will also develop software and sensor readers enabling workers in diverse environments to quickly and easily detect and characterise a wide range of harmful gases, supporting rapid and accurately targeted response.
