    Abstract:

Applications: Alcohol breath analyzer is one of the essential devices which use non-invasive technique to measure the content of alcohol in human blood. It provides a tool for screening drivers for assessing the concentration of alcohols in human breath. Since, such sensors are tested in the field directly; it is therefore required for them to be efficient in detecting alcohol in low levels at room temperature. Nano structured semiconductors are currently providing numerous applications in industrial and biomedical applications. A MoO3 layered chip based nano silicon sensor has been fabricated which is operable at room temp. for selective detection of acetone at sub-ppm level. The measured acetone levels in the breath of a patient can in turn be correlated with sugar levels and diabetic status in the human body. The fabricated chips can be packaged into a sensor header and integrated with a microcontroller to provide a handheld device. This portable device is for monitoring acetone levels in the exhaled breath of patients. A highly sensitive alcohol sensor with detection up to low ppm at room temperature has been developed
Advantages: This sensor can be integrated with Automatic engines locking system through alcohol detection. This technology is helpful in reducing the no. of alcohol related road accidents. It is also helpful for police to control drunk and driving cases.

THE VISION
THE MISSION
ABOUT I-STEM
It has always been the basic tenet of the Government of India, in generously funding R&D efforts at academic institutions over the years, that facilities established through such support be made available to those needing them and qualified to make use of them for their own research work

However, this was never easy or straightforward for, among other reasons, there was no ready source of information of what facility was available and where. Thanks to the Web, it is much easier today to have a national and regional “inventory of resources”, so as to match users with the resources they need, and to do all this in an efficient and transparent manner.

This can lead to a leap in R&D productivity and greatly enhance the effectiveness of public investment. This is the motivation behind I-STEM.
