Abstract:

The Giner, Inc. Phase I program will examine the response to explosive and toxic gas simulants of sensor arrays using a combination of specifically doped metal oxides (DMO) developed at Giner, Inc. in conjunction with metallophthalocyanine (MPc) thin films developed at the University of California at San Diego (UCSD). Electronic controls developed for the MPc sensors will be evaluated also for the metal oxide sensors to enhance vapor discrimination, sensitivity and response time. The different response characteristics of these two classes of sensors for trace peroxides and other select stimulant vapors in the presence of typical atmospheric components will be used to design arrays having the required sensitivity and selectivity for Air Force needs.
