  1. COCAINE/HEROIN DRUG DETECTION USING SURFACE ACOUSTIC WAVE (SAW) SENSORS

    SBC: Amerasia Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THERE IS A NEED FOR A PORTABLE DETECTOR SYSTEM THAT CAN DETECT ILLEGAL DRUGS, PRIMARILY MARIJUANA, COCAINE, AND HEROIN, ENTERING THE UNITED STATES ABOARD MARITIME VESSELS. A PRELIMINARY INVESTIGATION HAS SHOWN THAT SAW TECHNOLOGY CAN DETECT 10 FEMTOGRAMS (1 X 10-14) WITH A SIGNAL TO NOISE RATIO OF 3:1. IN ADDITION, THESE SENSORS HAVE A DYNAMIC RANGE OF OVER 1,000,000. BY COMBINING SAW TECHNOLOGY W ...
