Former OSU student makes professors research his business
Drs. Allen Apblett and Nick Materer developed an nanotechnology-based ink that changes color when it detects a certain type of explosive and then neutralizes it, he said.
Apblett and Materer developed the environmentally-safe ink over eight years. The Oklahoma City-based Military Institute for the Prevention of Terrorism gave them a research grant.
The ink is dark blue, but turns yellow when it detects the vapors of an improvised explosive, Shaikh said. The ink doesn't stop there, it uses nanotechnology to actually neutralize the bomb.
