Sensor earns UAE students third place in international contest

A group of engineering students from the United Arab Emirates University (UAUE) that developed a biological sensor took third place in an international contest recently.

The fifth annual International Conference on Electronic Devices, Systems and Applications (ICDESA) was held at the American University of Ras Al Khaima. It was sponsored by the Global Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE).
UAEU’s team of students included Musab Asad, Sultan Al Neyadi, Othman Al Aidaros and Mahmoud Khalil. These students, who were supervised by Mousa Hussein, an associate professor of engineering, competed against undergraduate and postgraduate students from around the world.
The UAEU students' project, “Single Port Bio-Sensor Design Using Metamaterial Split Ring Resonator,” used resonant circuits to sense biological samples. The sensor changes when different electrical properties are applied, providing fast recognition of the biological samples being tested. It also costs less compared with current similar sensors using medical devices.
