Highly Sensitive Plasmonic Sensors for Optical Detection of Water Contamination
A 'KAMIN' project
Nearly two-thirds of global consumers will make healthier choices in what they buy (EY future consumer index, Oct 2020). The world is growing fast, and we need to make sure that our food and water remain safe.
Most of the optical instrumentation for sensing and analysis (e.g., optical spectrophotometers), and their complementary equipment are very expensive. Today, when technology advances rapidly, and most infrastructure is miniaturizing - it is time to adapt to these changes.
The vast majority of substrates for sensing, and specifically referring to Surface Enhanced Raman Spectroscopy (SERS), are general and non-selective, used for multiple analytes.
