 Nanotechnology-based sensors are based on fundamental nanomaterials such as carbon nanotubes, nanowires or nanoparticles. They can be used to detect trace amounts of chemical vapors. Due to their extremely small size, just a few gas molecules are sufficient to change the electrical properties (e.g., resistance and capacitance) of the sensing elements, making it possible to detect very low concentrations of specific chemicals.
