Plasmonics for high-throughput low-cost bio/environmental sensing

Prof Baumberg believes on-line monitoring of bio-molecules can be enabled by combining assembly of tiny particles with fluidic chips.


Relevance to industry

- finding ways to assemble metallic nanoparticles in specific nano-geometries, to concentrate light on the nanoscale

- using metal nanoparticle assemblies for sensing particular chemicals, and directing chemical reactions

- using these nanodevices for low-energy optical and optoelectronic switching

- exploiting such nanoparticle spectroscopies for bio-sensing (for instance in urine)
