Abstract:

Main goal to develop new techniques for low-cost optical spectroscopy that enable quantitative measurements in poor resource environments. The realized techniques span a broad optical range UV through near infrared. Major technologies developed include 1 a new low-cost, nanoparticle-based strategy for non-invasive measurement of whole sample bodily fluids 2 a new platform for robust colorimetric assay for measurement for point-of-care health monitoring 3 a new technique for low-cost polarization spectroscopy in the infrared for molecular contrast imaging of biological tissue. Outcomes 2 peer-reviewed publications, 1 more in preparation, 1 archival conference paper, and 2 invention disclosures.
