Applying a fibre-optic based surface plasmon resonance sensor prototype in desalination

Further to the previously-funded project, this project will develop a prototype of nano-engineered fibre-optic based surface plasmon resonance (SPR) sensors. Based on doping various ligands onto gold nanolayers, the proposed optical fibre sensor will detect specific chemical contents and microbes in water. This will serve as a powerful tool for environmental and process monitoring in Desalination plants, featuring high sensitivity and excellent discrimination capability, high selectivity, low cost and corrosion free.

Funding agency

National Centre of Excellence for Desalination

Project duration
