Connecting science with industry: lessons learned transferring a novel plasmonic mercury sensor from the bench to the field

Jeffrey Crosby / Jay James
Published Online: 2016-03-04 | DOI: https://doi.org/10.1515/reveh-2015-0051


Mercury is a pollutant of pressing global concern. National and international efforts are focused on reducing mercury in the environment to prevent its adverse health impacts. Better sensors would aid in these efforts. This paper details ongoing efforts to deploy novel plasmonic mercury sensors. The authors describe the research efforts to develop the fundamental technology in a research lab and the experience translating that fundamental research into a viable field-ready sensor. Lessons learned along the way are explored.

Keywords: commercialization; environmental sensors; gold nanoparticles; mercury; plasmonics
