Student working on a research project.

Contact Potential Detector For Anesthetic Gasses

Nitrous oxide is an example of a frequently used anesthetic gas, used particularly in Dentistry for sedation, that exceeds recommended standards for room concentrations during therapy, endangering patients and caregivers. This project seeks to utilize the fundamental electoactivity principles of contact potential measurement to develop an online detector for these gasses.
