Project Description

The objective of this project is to develop graphene-based composites that enable gas sensors to be fabricated for high temperature (up to 1000°C), harsh environment applications with high sensitivity, selectivity and rapid response times.

Project Benefits

This project will develop gas sensors for harsh environment applications and can be used in both warm and low temperature regimes. Advancements in high sensitivity, selectivity, and rapid response sensors materials will lower operating costs by allowing more accurate measurement of the conditions inside a gasifier or boiler to better control their operation. As well, this project will expand current knowledge of materials properties and surface chemistry of graphene-nanoparticle composites.
