Title: Detection and Characterization of Chemicals Present in Tank Waste

Abstract

The principal goal of this three-year project is to develop and demonstrate novel multiparameter micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) sensors that are robust and can be used to simultaneously detect the presence of target chemicals in a mixture, radiation emitted from radioactive materials, and the heat generated by the absorption of photons of specific wavelength by the target chemicals. A major emphasis of this program is to study and develop effective methods of modifying MEMS surfaces with nano-scale structural features and chemical selective phases to improve sensor performance.
