Graphene Foam Detects Explosives, Emissions Better than Today's Gas Sensors (2 of 2)

Caption: A new study from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute demonstrates how graphene foam, seen here in a scanning electron micrograph, can outperform leading commercial gas sensors in detecting potentially dangerous and explosive chemicals. The discovery opens the door for a new generation of gas sensors to be used by bomb squads, law enforcement officials, defense organizations, and in various industrial settings.
