Chemiresistors Based on Nanocomposite Layers for Gas Detection

The aim of this project is to extend the portfolio of products in a specific branch of sensors, i.e. gas-detecting chemiresistors intended for following market segments (or end-users): "Smart-City" concept, Integrated Rescue System, Army of the Czech Republic. The chemiresistors for "SmartCity" concept will monitore atmospheric environmental pollutants (ozone, nitrogen oxides, sulphur oxides), those for Integrated Rescue System and Army of the Czech Republic will fulfill the role of first-line-detectors for early indentification of detection taggants in explosives (organic nitrates) or chemical warfare agents (versicants, nerve agents). The project goal is to enter the market with a new series of gas sensors intended for the above mentioned application areas; the characteristic feature of the produced sensors will be the high added value.
