Nanomaterials in defence and security
Defence against biological and chemical agents and environmental security are viewed as key priority areas for global security. Chemical and biological threats pose a significant concern not only to military personnel but also to individuals and groups. Nanomaterials and nanotechnology can play a vital role in the detection and decontamination of chemical and biological threat agents. Nanosensors are allowing for improved detection, decontamination and protection against chemical, bio-agents and explosive threats.
