Abstract

The vapor classification performance of arrays of conducting polymer composite vapor detectors has been evaluated as a function of the number and type of detectors in an array. Quantitative performance comparisons were facilitated by challenging a collection of detector arrays with vapor discrimination tasks that were sufficiently difficult that at least some of the arrays did not exhibit perfect classification ability for all of the tasks of interest. Specific discrimination tasks involved differentiating between low concentration (
