sensors - nanostructured carbon applications - nano-c


The availability of extremely small, lightweight and durable carbon materials is driving a new generation of sensors.  Now that these devices can be fabricated at an extremely low cost, they can be used for everything from high-end activity monitors and medical x-ray devices to disposable sensors for one-time usage.

With Nano-C’s carbon nanotubes and fullerenes being just 1/50,000th the diameter of a human hair, they are the ideal material to power a new generation of sensors.  Nano-C’s carbon nanotubes and fullerenes have gained approval from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), making them safe and affordable for virtually any application that needs sensing capabilities.

Below are just a few examples of carbon-based sensors that will deliver a new era in electronics innovation. Click here for more detailed technical information on this technology and potential sensor applications.

X-Ray Machines Smaller, lightweight and more portable x-rays with lower radiation dosage.
Infrared/night vision Low-cost, accurate cameras in cars and other applications where night-vision can be life saving.
Wearables Small, lightweight and low cost devices for everything from wearable clothing and “fitbits” to household appliances.
Liquid or gas sensing sensors Disposable sensors built into food packaging that can detect gases emitted from decomposing food, benefitting the entire food distribution chain.
Location-based sensors Low-cost, disposable tracking devices on packages.
