Fiber refractometry revisited

Response of three sensors across three different RI Zones.

The refractive index (RI) n of a substance is generally defined as the ratio of the speed of an electromagnetic wave in vacuum c to its velocity in that substance v, or n = c/v. Refractive index

Building nanocomposite materials for sensing applications

Construction of nanoscale devices is a crucial step toward the application of nanotechnology in a variety of fields. Although construction by addition of individual building blocks might appear impossible without using nanomachines, it can actually be carried

Metal–organic framework for “NO” sensing!

Nitric oxide (NO) is a free radical which is found to prevail as a colourless gas. It has a very short life-time (of few seconds) and yet regulates several biological processes in living systems. For its participation

Fishing highly explosive and toxic TNP

Water pollution by anthropogenic sources such as industrial effluents, mining activities, use of fertilizers and pesticides, dumping grounds is increasing in alarming rate. Picric acid (2,4,6-trinitrophenol, TNP) is highly explosive molecule used in armour piercing shells, bombs,
