Headline of the Day
"Detecting Explosives with Spinach" has got to be the headline of the day.  As for what else might be detected with it, that seems to be a matter of imagination.  If a compound can be derived that will make the carbon nanotubes flouresce, and work in their process, it seems they could detect anything.


My question is how the researchers get the carbon nanotubes embedded in the leaves.  Do they have to be manually inserted?  One can imagine some sort of spinach surgery, but are they injected with needles?  It would seem the nanotubes would be too big to get across the root hairs and be absorbed with the water.  Can they be just sprinkled on the plants?

A battery management system (BMS), in addition to many other functions, has to closely monitor voltage, current, and the temperature of battery cells and packs. Temperature measurement is important in preserving the operational characteristics of both the cells and the BMS itself, as well as optimizing the state of health (SOH) by preventing degradation.
