Detecting Explosives to Save Lives in War Zone

Stefanie explains how her research on designing sensors for explosives depends on the principles of VSEPR (valence shell electron pair repulsion) theory. Stefanie’s sensor design amplifies small-scale changes in bond angles following interaction with a target molecule, and she hopes that her work will lead to better detectors for landmines and improvised explosive devices.
