This paper presents the development of a portable gas sensor device prototype able to detect explosives vapors as 2,4 dinitrotoluene (DNT). This detector is based on a single polymer coated quartz crystal microbalance and an appropriate data processing implemented on a microcontroller. Several polymeric materials have been chosen and their sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
