The Optical Sensor Group has been established in 1991. The group effort has been aimed at research and development of optical sensors, especially, optical sensors based on surface plasmon resonance (SPR). The group collaborates with several research teams pursuing development of surface functionalization for specific sensor applications. Since its inception the group has been working closely with private companies to enhance the competiveness of American chemical and high technology industry. Currently, the group has a total of 2 faculty members and 5 graduates.

We have two main objectives:

  • Develop optical sensor instrumentation for basic research into biomolecules and biomolecular interactions.

  • Develop low-cost, sensitive and robust sensor technology for real-time detection of chemical and biological analytes in field.
