Abstract
The overall goal of the SBIR Phase II program is development, fabrication, and demonstration of a fully integrated graphene-based sensor capable of detection of different types of chemical agents in the vapor phase with better than parts per billion (ppb) sensitivity and a high degree of specificity. It should also exhibit a reversible function of the sensing element. The program will synergistically combine the sensitivity of graphene with the specificity of molecular imprinting. The relevant key target attributes of the sensor platform to be integrated with an RF antenna are high detection probability (> 95%), low false alarm (< 5%) rate and continuous monitoring.
