Sensors Expo 2006: Nanotechnology sensor among products on display


Rosemont, IL and Austin, TXNanotechnology products are among new offerings that will be introduced and displayed at next week's Sensors Expo 2006 in Rosemont (Chicago-area), IL. Included are demonstrations of several nanotech-enabled sensors from Applied Nanotech Inc. (ANI): carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide devices and a hydrogen sensor for power transformers.

ANI will exhibit products and technologies related to four advanced sensor platforms: gated metal oxide sensors (GMOS), photo-acoustic sensing system (PAS), metal nanoparticle sensors (MNPS), and enzyme-coated carbon nanotube biosensors (ECNT). Nanotech-enabled sensors have application in commercial, industrial processing, building environmental control and monitoring, defense, and homeland security.

The exhibition will provide the first opportunity to see the operation of what the manufacturer calls a "novel carbon monoxide sensor" based on its patented GMOS technology platform. The gated bias is said to allow for high sensitivity, pico amp power requirements, extreme environmental operating parameters, and low manufacturing costs. A hydrogen sensor for power transformers and carbon dioxide sensors based on the MNPS and PAS platforms will also be demonstrated. ( Click here for more details on the GMOS sensor.)

Sensors Expo 2006, celebrating its 20thanniversary, focuses on sensors and sensor-integrated systems in North America. The event takes place June 5-7, 2006, at the Donald E. Stephens convention center. Highlights include three keynote presentations open to all attendees; a technical conference covering sensor applications, emerging technologies, embedded systems, wireless sensing, and more; and a showcase of sensor and sensing technologies.

Watch for an article on nanotechnology concepts in the July 2006 issue of Control Engineering .
