Dr William Peveler, a graduate of our SECReT programme, is the lead researcher on the development of a new method for detecting and identifying explosives using a single test. The proof-of-concept sensor is designed to quickly identify and quantify five commonly used explosives in solution to help track toxic contamination in waste water and improve the safety of public spaces.
