Akinwande leads development of new sensor

EECS Professor Akintunde Ibitayo Akinwande, working with MIT research scientist Luis Velasquez-Garcia in the Microsystems Technology Laboratories (MTL) has developed a tiny sensor that can detect minute quantities of hazardous gases, including toxic industrial chemicals and chemical warfare agents. The device will potentially be used to help protect water supplies, to aid in medical diagnostics in addition to detecting hazardous gases in the air.
