Based on the programable surface chemistry of M13 bacteriophage and inspired by the neural mechanism of the mammalian olfactory system, Lee et al., proposed an electronic nose.
The neural pattern separation (NPS) was devised to apply the pattern separation that operates in the memory and learning process of the brain to the electronic nose.
This research demonstrated an electronic nose in a portable device form, distinguishing polycyclic aromatic compounds (harmful in living environment) in an atomic-level resolution (97.5% selectivity rate) for the first time.
The results provide practical methodology and inspiration for the second-generation electronic nose development toward the performance of detection dogs (K9).
