Towards Cheap, Miniaturized, Robust Sensors For Explosives 

The compound 2,4,6-Trinitrotoluene (TNT) is an explosive material widely used for military, industrial, and mining applications. Its reduction products are known to be toxic and carcinogenic to humans and may contaminate and accumulate in soils and drinking water. Furthermore, being one of the most commonly-used industrial explosives, the procurement of TNT by terrorists to build improvised explosive devices (IEDs) poses a real and ongoing threat and presents a significant safety concern in peoples' daily lives. Due to these environmental and...
