Sensor technologies developed by researchers in the Ecohydrology Research Group were pitched by Dr. Philippe Van Cappellen at the Global WaterTech Challenge earlier this month and were awarded the 3rd place prize. The competition took place at the 4th International Water Environment Management Summit in Nanjing, China. The technologies presented include:
1) A prototype multi-fibre optode system for field measurements of dissolved oxygen
2) A DNA-based sensor for mercury detection using a DGT (Diffusive Gradients in Thin Films) technique, developed in collaboration with Dr. Juewen Liu from the Deparment of Chemistry
