    In the next five years, networks of sensors like this miniature silicon chip trace-gas spectrometer will help us "see" and manage environmental pollutants. This sensor design uses IBM's expertise in silicon photonics to detect methane with infrared light brought in via optical fibers. (Credit: IBM Research)
