Seacoast Science’s chemical sensors use polymer
filled micromachined capacitors to measure the dielectric constant
of an array of selectively-absorbing materials. Capable of detecting
vapors of organic compounds and inorganic gases, each device has ten
sensors on a single chip, with several different coatings for
redundancy and interferent rejection.
Seacoast Science develops microelectromechanical systems (MEMS)
sensors for gas phase analytes including volatile organic compounds (VOCs)
chemical warfare agents (CWA) toxic industrial chemicals and
materials (TICS & TIMS), emission gases, hydrogen and ethanol.
The compact size, low power consumption, and low cost of these
sensors make them ideal for integration into varied packages for
