IIT Jodhpur fabricates a highly sensitive device for lead detection

Researchers at IIT Jodhpur have fabricated a portable sensor for detecting lead in water. It can detect lead even when present at extremely low concentration of 0.018 ppb, much lower than the WHO limit of 5 ppb for drinking water. A highly sensitive, portable device that can detect the presence of lead in water even … Continue reading IIT Jodhpur fabricates a highly sensitive device for lead detection

IIT Jodhpur fabricates a highly sensitive hydrogen sensor

A research team from IIT Jodhpur and IIT Hyderabad have together fabricated a sensor that can detect hydrogen gas even when present at extremely low concentration of 1 ppm. The sensitivity is 30% at 1 ppm hydrogen concentration and 74% at 100 ppm concentration. A sensor that can detect hydrogen gas even when present at … Continue reading IIT Jodhpur fabricates a highly sensitive hydrogen sensor
