Combining material science and chemical engineering design for novel and fast optical nanostructured sensors. Ghent University
Due to their high relative surface area, nanofibrous materials obtained via electrospinning have
shown to be ideal candidates for high-quality sensors in many sectors, including environmental
monitoring, food inspection and biomedicine. The key challenges remain (i) the controlled
incorporation of analyte-sensitive dye molecules in the nanofibers via chemical linkage without
leaching upon application and (ii) the ...
