Title: “Fiber-optic Biosensors for Water Quality Assessment”
Abstract for the talk:
Testing of water is an integral component for maintaining water quality and providing drinking water to everyone. Due to the limited accessibility of sophisticated instrumentsfor organic and inorganic analysis, proper testing is not accessible for everyone. Fiber optic sensors, due to their
versatility, are potential solutions for water quality assessment that can be deployed at the broadest scale, thereby making them accessible at remote locations. In this talk, I will be providing an overview of the research in the development of
guided-wave absorbance-based fiber-optic sensors and their application for the detection of contaminants in drinking water.
Dr.Nirmal Punjabi works as a Project Research Scientist, NCETIS at Indian Institute of Technology Bombay, India.
