Title (EN) METHOD AND APPARATUS FOR CHEMICAL DETECTION AND RELEASE
(FR) PROCÉDÉ ET APPAREIL DE DÉTECTION ET LIBÉRATION DE PRODUITS CHIMIQUES
Abstract:
(EN) A nano-sniffer is provided for detecting chemicals and/or releasing chemicals based on detection of a chemical. The nano-sniffer may be less than about 150 nanometers in size. The nano-sniffer may be a passive, active, or semi-passive nano-sniffer. The nano-sniffer may be distributed to a subjects such as a human or animal or products, for example. The nano-sniffer may include a nano RFID component, including nano antennae that may comprise one or more carbon tubes. The nano-sniffer may include a nano battery. The nano-sniffer may include an environmentally reactive shell that reacts to its immediate environment to affix or adhere to a subject. The nano-sniffer may be constructed for direct or indirect distribution techniques such as by airborne techniques for inhalation, consumption distribution for ingestion, and contact distribution, for example.
(FR) L'invention concerne un nanorenifleur permettant de détecter des produits chimiques et/ou de libérer des produits chimiques sur la base de la détection d'un produit chimique. La taille du nanorenifleur peut être inférieure à environ 150 nanomètres. Le nanorenifleur peut être passif, actif ou semi-passif. Le nanorenifleur peut être distribué à des sujets humains, animaux ou des produits par exemple. Le nanorenifleur peut comporter un nano-composant RFID, comportant des nano-antennes pouvant comprendre un ou plusieurs tubes de carbone. Le nanorenifleur peut contenir une nano-batterie. Le nanorenifleur peut contenir une coquille réactive vis-à-vis de l'environnement qui réagit à son environnement immédiat pour se fixer ou se coller à un sujet. Le nanorenifleur peut être conçu pour des techniques de distribution directes ou indirectes comme des techniques aériennes pour inhalation, une distribution par consommation pour ingestion et une distribution par contact, par exemple.
