Abstract:
This paper describes a program to develop a miniaturized chemical laboratory (μChemLab™). This system includes multiple analysis channels each with microfabricated sample collectors/concentrators, gas chromatographic separators, and chemically selective detectors based on an array of coated surface acoustic wave devices. This development effort is currently focused on fabricating small (palm-top computer sized), lightweight, and autonomous systems that provide rapid (1 min), sensitive (1-10 ppb), and selective detection of chemical warfare agents. The small size and low power of the μChemLab™ technology make it potentially useful for monitoring of compounds such as volatile organic compounds (VOCs), ammonia, and formaldehyde in space environments.
