Defense appropriations fund WMU research

Abstract:
Two Western Michigan University research initiatives that are part of the U.S. Department of Defense 2007 Appropriations Bill will lead to improved military vehicle designs and the development of tiny sensors capable of alerting troops to the presence of toxins.

The defense bill includes: A $1.3 million award for WMU research that will focus on the development of small, lightweight sensors capable of rapid detection and measurement of toxins and a rapid display of light alerts that can immediately warn users of danger. The nanosensor project is under the direction of Dr. Subra Muralidharan, professor of chemistry and director of the Nanotechnology Research and Computation Center.
