The effective and reliable detection of explosive compounds in complex environments is an important problem in many environment and security-related applications. This paper develops an explosive detection approach based on multi-modal sensing and sensor data fusion. A least-squares feature extraction technique is designed to isolate explosive signatures in(More)
BACKGROUND Ketogenic diets are high fat and low carbohydrate or very low carbohydrate diets, which render high production of ketones upon consumption known as nutritional ketosis (NK). Ketosis is also produced during fasting periods, which is known as fasting ketosis (FK). Recently, the combinations of NK and FK, as well as NK alone, have been used as(More)
A chemical sensor for ozone based on an array of microfabricated tuning forks is described. The tuning forks are highly sensitive and stable, with low power consumption and cost. The selective detection is based on the specific reaction of the polymer with ozone. With a mass detection limit of ∼2 pg/mm(2) and response time of 1 second, the sensor coated(More)
