By continuous cleaning of carbon nanotube surface with UV light during gas detection, a team at the Honda Research Institute (HRI) have achieved sensitivities up to 10,000 times better than current state-of-the-art results. Dr. Gugang Chen, Senior Scientist at HRI, believes the work constitutes a significant advance in the sensor field. The work of Dr. Chen and his research team has recently been published; to view the paper, visit: http://www.nature.com/srep/2012/120329/srep00343/full/srep00343.html
