New Device Uses Graphene Plasmonics to Beat Drug Cheats, Detect Viruses and Much More, University of Manchester Study


1/15/2013 8:10:26 AM

Wonder material graphene could help detect the presence of drugs or toxins in the body or dramatically improve airport security, University of Manchester researchers have found. Writing in Nature Materials, the scientists, working with colleagues from Aix-Marseille University, have created a device which potentially can see one molecule though a simple optical system and can analyse its components within minutes. This uses plasmonics -- the study of vibrations of electrons in different materials.
