The Center for Advanced Sensors and Environmental Systems works on sensors and sensor systems that will surpass existing technology in terms of sensitivity, response time and portability.
Chemist Omowunmi Sadik is the director of the Center for Advanced Sensors and Environmental Systems (CASE).
Qinru Qiu, a faculty member in the Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, serves as associate director of CASE.
The Ultra-Sensitive Portable Capillary Sensor, or U-PAC, was designed by a team of chemists, biologists and engineers.
Research at CASE is focused on the development of all aspects of sensors, sensor systems and devices including acoustical, visual, chemical and biologically based sensor technologies and their applications for civilian and military use.
Graduate student Fred Wafula uses an atomic force microscope to evaluate the surface roughness of a sample.
CASE brings together a multidisciplinary team with a diverse set of skills to create sensors and sensor systems that will surpass existing technology in terms of sensitivity, response time and portability.
CASE, established in 2004 as a Binghamton University Organized Research Center, is a national leader in interfacial science and engineering and functional sensing devices and systems as well as a regional economic development hub.
CASE research emphasizes advances in basic sensor research, functional sensing materials, characterization, enhanced signal transduction and laboratory testing.
