Got Gas? A Portable Gas Detector for Harmful Substances

Currently, gas detection products available on the market are expensive, large, and incapable of detecting a wide range of gases with high precision. The objective of this project is to integrate a mid-infrared, full spectrometer lab-on-a-chip into a portable, handheld system. The team designed a PCB to miniaturize the system and incorporated Bluetooth Low Energy with a dedicated Android application, which allows a user to view gas concentrations and have custom control of the chip.
