Professor Il-Doo Kim of Materials Science & Engineering, KAIST, developed an exhaled breath sensor that is composed of highly porous tin dioxide (SnO2) nanofibers with a unique nanostructure functionalized by catalytic platinum (Pt) particles. This unique structure reacts to acetone gas, which is known as a biomarker of diabetes, for the fast diagnosis of the disease within 10 seconds.
