The Innovators: Measuring Freshness a Better Way

Posted on 9/11/2020 11:49:47 AM

If you judge the freshness of milk by the sell-by date, a better measure may be coming soon. Gregory Kenning, IUP professor of physics, has developed a sensor that can mimic the decay of milk and other products. Simply scanning the sensor, if applied to the product’s packaging, one day could provide ultimate insight into a product’s remaining usable life.

This production is episode 4 of “The Innovators,” a series about IUP students, faculty, and staff who are doing innovative things: new ideas, new ways of doing things, and new inventions.
