Chemical Sensing with Photonic Nanostructures and Ionic Liquid Films

This project aims to develop a highly sensitive chemical sensingtechnology by exploiting the properties of electromagnetic waves at theinterface between photonic nanostructures and ionic liquid thin films. Highsensitivity enabled by the photonic nanostructure and analyte-selectivityobtained by the ionic liquid layer are combined for a low-cost, low-power,miniaturizable, drift-free optical sensing mechanism with minimal maintenance. 

This is a collaborative project where we partner with Profs. MichaelHinczewski and GiuseppeStrangi from Physics and Prof. UmutGurkan from Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering at CWRU.
