FOX 45 TV Features Ghodssi's Crab Nano-Sensor Technology


Baltimore's FOX 45 TV offered in-depth, "cover story" treatment of a feature on crab nano-sensor technology currently being developed at the University of Maryland. Chitosan, a substance found in crab shells, is the key component in a nanoscale sensor system developed by Associate Professor Reza Ghodssi (ECE/ISR/NanoCenter) and graduate students Nathan Siwak, Sephan Koev, Jonathan McGee and Mike Fan in the MEMS Sensors and Actuators Lab. The sensor can detect minute quantities of explosives, bioagents, chemicals, and other dangerous materials in air and water, potentially leading to security and safety innovations for airports, hospitals, and other public locations.
