Graphene Foam Detects Explosives, Emissions Better than Today's Gas Sensors (1 of 2) (image) Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Share Print E-Mail Caption A new study from Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute demonstrates how graphene foam, as see here, 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.
