Capstone Design Spotlight:

ChemSense is a portable system for detecting hazardous airborne chemicals. The project integrated a tunable, mid-infrared laser spectrometer in a portable low power package. The device replaces hundreds of pounds of laboratory equipment normally used in absorption spectroscopy with a single, hand-held unit. The team designed and integrated the laser driver and photodetector post amplifier circuits on a printed circuit board, to enable miniaturization of the system. For increased flexibility the device incorporates Bluetooth low energy connectivity and a dedicated Android application. Read more about ChemSense in the article featured in the Smithsonian Magazine.


Industry, student and faculty efforts culminate at the end of each course at the Senior Design Showcase, where demos are displayed publicly of prototypes and processes. The Senior Design Showcase takes place in late-November and late-April every year.
