2.1    INTRODUCTION

The capability to detect and quantify chemicals in the atmosphere, together with their concentration, is a source of valuable information for many safety and security applications ranging from pollution monitoring to detection of explosives and drug factories. Actually, several gases are considered responsible for respiratory illness in citizens; some of them (e.g., benzene) are known to induce ...
