Abstract:The current ways of finding a substance’s concentration in a solution are time-consuming, difficult to access, and quite expensive. In this project, we have begun to use ultrasensitive colorimetric plasmonic sensing technologies to develop a mobile-based colorimetric-sensing system that would allow a cost-effective method of concentration detection in any location with a working mobile device. Ultimately, detections would only require placing a drop of solution on the plasmonic sensor. By shining a high-intensity light through the semi-transparent sensor, the mobile device can capture the refraction color from the solution. By image analysis and interpolations, the system is able to calculate the concentration of the substance within the solution. Above all, this research produces a high-yield, high-portability, and low-cost solution which is a suitable immediate application of the ultrasensitive colorimetric plasmonic sensing technique.
