Supported by an ARC Discovery program grant, scientists have discovered how to measure greenhouse gases 200,000 times faster as the result of research by an award-winning PhD student from The University of Western Australia and a US team. 

The discovery, which is already being used by NASA scientists in Space, has major implications for global warming research, breath analysis (to detect illness), explosives detection, chemical process monitoring and a range of other applications, including fundamental quantum theory.
