  abstract =     "Electronic noses (e-noses) are increasingly being used
                 as vapour sensors in a range of application areas.
                 E-noses made up of arrays of organic field-effect
                 transistors (OFETs) are particularly valuable due the
                 range and diversity of the information which they
                 provide concerning analyte binding. This study
                 demonstrates that arrays of OFETs, when combined with a
                 data analysis technique using Genetic Programming (GP),
                 can selectively detect airborne analytes in real time.
                 The use of multiple parameters - on resistance, off
                 current and mobility - collected from multiple
                 transistors coated with different semiconducting
                 polymers gives dramatic improvements in the sensitivity
                 (true positive rate), specificity (true negative rate)
                 and speed of sensing. Computer-controlled data
                 collection allows the identification of analytes in
                 real-time, with a time-lag between exposure and
                 detection of the order of 4s.",
