CamBridgeSens network

CamBridgeSens is a Strategic Research Network of researchers working towards sensing technologies, with an affiliated EPSRC Centre for Doctoral Training in Sensor Technologies and Applications. Research themes:

  • Sensor Technology: MEMS, microfluidics, fibre and waveguide optics, micro- and nanopores, autonomous sensors.
  • Sensor Middleware: sensor networks and data acquisition
  • Sensor Applications: environmental monitoring, civil infrastructure monitoring, healthcare, process control and security.

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.

Hollow core fibres

Hollow-core optical fibers enable interaction of fluids with concentrated light which in turn allows for signal amplification and high optical response sensitivity in a very small volume. Photonic crystal structure forces the light to travel through the hollow core of the fibre which can be filled with liquid to be studied.
