THE AUSTRALIAN DEMENTIA NETWORK (ADNET): BRINGING TOGETHER AUSTRALIA’S DEMENTIA STAKEHOLDERS
Grant number: 1152623 | Funding period: 2018 - 2023
Project Abstract This project proposes the development and demonstration of a label-free sensing instrument based on the integration of an electronically controlled linear swept-frequency semiconductor laser, a high quality factor (Q) optical resonator with covalent surface functionalization, and a microfluidic cell for analyte delivery. It will address a number of key issues that currently prevent this technology from becoming an accessible, affordable, and useful tool. These efforts will develop the optical cavity sensing platform to a point where it is robust and repeatable, and provides sensitivity and cost-effectiveness that are at least an order of magnitude better than any available a..View full description
