Thin Film Fluorescent Sensors for Explosives Detection
R2-C1

Overview and technical approach

  • Layered thin films can be engineered to amplify fluorescence
  • The amplified response increases sensitivity for detection of explosives

Relevance to the Homeland Security Enterprise

  • Improved sensitivity for explosives detection
  • Can be designed into arrays to provide a wide range of detectable analytes
