Highly sensitive sensor to detect a harmful gas in the atmosphere

A team of researchers from the Indian Institute of Science have developed a novel sensor to detect nitrogen dioxide (NO2) in the atmosphere. The sensor, which can catch a single nitrogen dioxide molecule among millions of other molecules, is one of the most sensitive in the world. Also, unlike other NO2 sensors which perform at high temperatures, the new sensor works even at room temperature.
