Abstract

The aim of this DARPA Adoption SBIR Phase II Proposal is to develop a hybrid silicon-based chip by integrating the two types of sensor arrays – electrochemical and molecular recognition sensor array. We will design and fabricate the first prototype chip with separate stand-alone electronics and demonstrate the feasibility of detecting both explosives and the byproducts of explosives in simulated waste water. The development of such a hybrid chip will give a unique capability for the DoD for operating in both urban and rural environments.
