Optical sensing

Sensing chemical and biological warefares are of significant interest for civilian and military safety as well as for environmental reasons. We employ various fluorescent polymers, organic nanoparticles and engineered nanomaterials for sensing nitroaromatics, nitroamines and bilogicals. Optical techniques like fluorescence quenching and fluorescence resonance energy transfer (FRET) are commonly used as sensing modality. The ease of fabrication, detection limit and ultra-fast detection method make these sensors unique as optical nose and opens the possibility of making a potable, hand-held sensor. In addition to that, we use graphene and 2-D nanomaterials for detecting trace metal ion concentration from industrial waste-water. A simple electrospinning based nano-sensor is being devloped to monitor insulin level in blood. We also have strong interest in developing sesnors for medical applications.
