NanoSensors, Inc. Prepares Characterization of Porous Silicon for Next Generation of Sensors

    SANTA CLARA, Calif., Feb 22 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- NanoSensors, Inc.
 (OTC Bulletin Board:   NNSR.OB), a company that develops and markets
 nanotechnology sensors, announced today that it will commence an evaluation to
 determine the optimal practical physical characteristics of the porous silicon
 for its next generation of sensors.
     Sensors measure the presence of substances in the air for remote
 detection.  The sensitivity and selectivity of these sensors depend on getting
 the highest density of sensor elements in a small volume, in order to be able
 to measure explosives and other terrorist threat materials at very low
 concentrations.  The Company has constructed an apparatus for the
 electro-chemical silicon etching process which will be used to produce porous
 silicon.  The initial evaluation of the process will be conducted with 4-inch
 silicon wafers to optimize porosity.
     The current method being used to track terrorist threat material is the
 "Gateway" topography where parcels and people are passed through a detection
 gate.  The Company's plan would be to field porous silicon sensors as "Sensor
 Dust" to blanket whole areas allowing for tracking a terrorist threat material
 through an entire area.
