Today on Meaghan's Minute, brought to you by Memory Protection Devices, researchers at Tel Aviv University's School of Chemistry and Center for Nanoscience and Nanotechnology have developed a revolutionary electronic chip with nano-sized chemical sensors to pick up the scent of explosives molecules better than a detection dog's nose.

This new sensor is mobile, inexpensive, and identifies in real time explosives in the air at concentrations as low as a few molecules per 1,000 trillion.
