Integrated photonic sensors for water pollution monitoring
Photonic technologies are set to revolutionise acquisition of chemical and biochemical information, driven by the demand for fast, low-cost, automated chemical analysis in a multiplicity of applications from point-of-care diagnostics to water quality monitoring. The integration, low cost and robustness of the microfabrication approaches which have made consumer electronics possible are enabling mass-produced chemical and bioanalytical microsystems. Optical techniques play a major role in quantitative chemical analysis and remain the mainstay of detection in “lab-on-chip” systems, but the degree of optical functionality integrated within these systems remains limited, and they have yet to benefit fully from the massive growth in optical telecommunications technologies in recent decades. Biosensor and lab-on-chip research and commercialisation have also been hampered by the lack of integrated photonic platforms which can operate over the mid-infrared (MIR) region from 2μm to 15μm, which would enable new opportunities for sensitive, selective, label-free biochemical analysis. Progress on new materials and approaches for high-sensitivity integrated photonic sensors for application in water and other aqueous media will be described.

Abstract

Photonic technologies are set to revolutionise acquisition of chemical and biochemical information, driven by the demand for fast, low-cost, automated chemical analysis in a multiplicity of applications from point-of-care diagnostics to water quality monitoring. The integration, low cost and robustness of the microfabrication approaches which have made consumer electronics possible are enabling mass-produced chemical and bioanalytical microsystems. Optical techniques play a major role in quantitative chemical analysis and remain the mainstay of detection in “lab-on-chip” systems, but the degree of optical functionality integrated within these systems remains limited, and they have yet to benefit fully from the massive growth in optical telecommunications technologies in recent decades. Biosensor and lab-on-chip research and commercialisation have also been hampered by the lack of integrated photonic platforms which can operate over the mid-infrared (MIR) region from 2μm to 15μm, which would enable new opportunities for sensitive, selective, label-free biochemical analysis. Progress on new materials and approaches for high-sensitivity integrated photonic sensors for application in water and other aqueous media will be described.
