Infrared Detector
SUMMARY Lehigh University has developed an Infrared (IR) sensor using ultrafast, un-cooled bolometer based on single wall carbon nanotube networks. This IR sensor offers lower intensity radiation and lower energy than current technologies. Assessments also suggest significantly better performance than that of conventional bolometers at a lower cost...

Rapid Sensing of Toxic Metals with a New Hybrid Inorganic Material (HIM) Through pH Changes
SUMMARY Lehigh University has developed a toxic metal detection device for use with potentially contaminated water. The sensor uses hybrid inorganic materials for simple and quick detection of heavy metals. The technology is essential for a number of applications, such as mining frac water, remote testing for poorly accessible regions and is par...
