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.
