IPAS High-sensitivity Biosensor research featured in Science Direct

Stephen WSA new biochemical sensor using specialty optical fibre has been developed by an IPAS team at the University of Adelaide. This new sensor is more sensitive than previous designs while still being fully fibre integrated, meaning it can be used directly with standard optical equipment. The sensor has advantages of bio-compatibility, small size, and low cost, yet is robust and simple. It has good potential for biochemical detection in applications that require real-time monitoring and in-field detection. Congratulations Stephen Warren-Smith  and team!
