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.
