Super-Fast Lasers Detect Poisonous Air

Super-Fast Lasers Detect Poisonous Air

By: vaneesha gupta

Konstantin Vodopyanov, professor in the College of Optics and Photonics at the University of Central Florida worked on the  development of a new way to use infrared lasers to detect tiny amounts of chemicals in the air that could have a wide variety of practical applications. This way is vey fast and accurate as well. Information can be obtained in seconds. The device is so sensitive that it can determine if there is a molecule of any chemical present at concentrations as low as one part per billion. I found this article interesting because it is interesting to know that a device can be very accurate.

This article relates to engineering because it involves designing, creating, analyzing, and building.
