LabSys’ post-CMOS electrochemical gas sensor research received a grant from the National Science Foundation SBIR program. The research aims to miniaturize electrochemical gas sensors through microfabrication. Eventually, the sensors will be integrated with CMOS sensor interface ICs. This technology enables smartphones, wearable devices, and smart home devices to detect carbon monoxide, methane, ozone, and many other gases. The NSF award accelerates the research of ground-breaking technology.
LabSys was hired by U.S. Air Force Research Lab along with Boeing and Michigan State University for developing non-destructive evaluation technologies for aircraft’s structural integrity. LabSys will work closely with Prof. Lalita Udpa to develop new sensors, circuits and algorithms that better identify breaks and corrosion in the second- and third-layers of airframes.
LabSys founder, Dr. Abe Huang, introduced the non-destructive evaluation project to Professor Albert Fert. Prof. Albert Fert is a French scientist who received the 2007 Nobel Prize for Physics for his independent codiscovery of giant magnetoresistance. The project uses a magnetoresistive sensor array to image the induced eddy current of an object in order to discover sub-surface abnormalities. The project is funded by the US Air Force.
LabSys received a research grant from the National Institute on Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism (NIAAA) for developing a non-enzymatic electrochemical alcohol sensor for continuous monitoring of blood alcohol content using minimal invasive microneedles. As part of the U.S. National Institutes of Health (NIH), NIAAA supports and conducts biomedical and behavioral research on the causes, consequences, treatment, and prevention of alcoholism and alcohol-related problems.
