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.|
