Researchers are utilizing advancements in integrated photonics to create a device called the Standoff Aerosol measUrement Remote Optical Network (SAURON) that can detect hazardous chemicals in the air, even when those chemicals may be surrounded by other substances. These advancements of integrated photonics comes from technology developed by Kerry Vahala at Caltech and John Bowers at UC Santa Barbara, as well as Nexus Photonics and hQphotonics.
