Detection of Explosives Made Easier by Development of a High-Tech Ring
Researchers develop a high-tech ring capable of detecting explosives in the surrounding environment.
According to a research published in October 2017, a group of researchers at the University of California, San Diego have created a ring that detects biological and chemical threats in the environment of the person wearing it.
Functional jewelry is trending, with broad range of earning to bracelets tracking fitness. This newly developed ring, however, serves a more advanced purpose than these well-known functional jewelry.
The high-tech ring comprises two main parts — an electrochemical sensor and a circuit board. The electrochemical sensor cap helps detect specific compounds in the surrounding environment, whereas the circuit board enables data processing, transmitting it wirelessly to a laptop or smartphone.
The ring is capable of performing voltammetric and chronoamperometric measurements, being able to detect a wide range of threats. Currently, the prototype form of the ring is efficient at optimally detecting explosives and organophosphate nerve agents that are present in vapor and liquids.
Researchers say “We have demonstrated for the first time a fully integrated wireless ring-based multiplexed chemical sensor platform for simultaneous monitoring of several (explosive and nerve-agent) security threats. The present work addressed also the growing needs for merging the strengths of fashion and wearable fields to create wearable lifestyle accessories toward a widespread acceptance of wearable sensor technology.”
