Abstract
THE LONG-TERM GOALS OF THIS PROJECT ARE THE DEVELOPMENT OF TECHNOLOGY-SUCH AS MICROSENSOR ARRAYS, AUTOMATIC CALIBRATION, PATTERN RECOGNITION METHODS-TO ALLOW THE DESIGNOF PORTABLE, INEXPENSIVE, AND RELIABLE INSTRUMENTS WITH EXCEPTIONAL ANALYTICAL CAPABILITIES FOR THE NONINVASIVE MEASUREMENT OF BLOOD ALCOHOL LEVELS. OTHER IMPORTANT CHEMICAL SENSING PROBLEMS MAY ALSO BE ADDRESSED WITH THIS APPROACH IN MEDICAL, HEALTH SCIENCE, ENVIRONMENTAL, AND INDUSTRIAL MARKETS. THIS PROJECT SEEKS TO INTEGRATE RECENT ADVANCES IN DYNAMIC CONLOMETRY WITH NEW CAPABILITIES IN COMPUTERIZED PORTABLE INSTRUMENTATION TO IMPROVE ANALYTICAL PERFORMANCE (BETTER SELECTIVITY AND SENSITIVITY) WITH BETTER LOGISTICS FOR FIELD USE (I.E., EASIER TO USE WITH AUTOTEST AND CALIBRATE FUNCTIONS, AS WELL AS SMALLER SIZE AND LOWER COST FOR PRACTICAL FIELD DEVELOPMENT TO A LARGE NUMBER OF USERS).
