Optical detection of toxic molecules in air offers many advantages such as high selectivity and robustness, however the sensitivity is not good enough for many applications. In this talk I will present a technology that combines nano-materials and optics, which improves sensitivity by several of magnitude. This new method enables miniaturisation and opens up new applications for optical sensing such as air quality monitoring, industrial process monitoring and even integration into fridges to detect when food goes bad.
