Detection Limits of Chemical Sensors: Applications and Misapplications
Wentzell, Peter D.
MetadataShow full item record
The limit of detection (LOD) and the sensitivity of a chemical sensor are defined using IUPAC guidelines. The LOD from simulated and experimental data is calculated from a calibration curve using a simple statistical model that was implemented into a spreadsheet program. This definition of the LOD is compared with the commonly used definition of the LOD, which is based on the product of sensitivity and the theoretical instrument resolution.
