Pilot project grant success

18 May 2017:

An ‘Institute for Photonics and Advanced Sensing’ (IPAS) pilot grant worth $6,000 has been awarded to CNBP researchers Dr Jingxian Yu (project lead – pictured left) and Dr Peipei Jia.

The grant will allow investigation into “double remote electrochemical addressing and optical readout of electrochemiluminescence at the nanopatterned tip of an optical fiber for the detection of biological species.”

The project has great potential to provide a versatile sensing platform for chemical sensing and medical diagnostics.

The proposed work will also bring chemists and physicists together to work in this trans-disciplinary area, with the possibility of promoting further collaborations between biological and medical scientists within IPAS and the CNBP.
