Abstract

The development of highly sensitive, fast Fourier transform (FFT) detected, frequency encoded quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) arrays is proposed for the detection of low vapor pressure (LVP) chemical components, including toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). The development of highly sensitive resonant mass detectors will be an important step in enabling the design of inexpensive
