Research topic and description: Monitoring Water Quality Using Silicon Photonics Sensors and Technologies.
The presence of pesticides in water monitoring is important for applications in drinking water and for monitoring agricultural run-off. This project investigates the design of a SOI chip with waveguides featuring strong fluid interaction to detect the effective index change caused by pesticide molecule on the silicon photonic sensor.
