Highly sensitive nanosensors to prevent potential catastrophes

Griffith University researchers are creating tiny high-tech chips that will detect problems in ageing gas and oil pipelines, preventing potential catastrophic events.

A team from Griffith’s Queensland Micro- and Nanotechnology Centre is developing the novel, low-cost and highly sensitive compact sensors that will detect and monitor changes in harsh environments, such as strain, pressure, flow rate, magnetic field and temperature.

With safety in the resource sector a globally critical issue, the researchers said an affordable, robust, and real-time monitoring system was imperative – and they have already made recent important discoveries furthering this work within the centre.
