High-Sensitivity Microsensors

Design breakthrough at CUNY's Advanced Science Center

Another promising advance on the horizon is the development of highly sensitive sensors that are small enough to be placed in hard-to-monitor locations like toxic areas and vehicle or machinery components.

Researchers at the Advanced Science Research Center at the Graduate Center, CUNY have borrowed concepts from quantum mechanics to develop a new technique for designing microelectromechanical (MEMS)-based wireless pressure sensors with capabilities far beyond those of conventional sensors. Imagine how you could use a network of such sensors to monitor your operations.
