Biomedical Sensor Development

Biomedical Sensor Development

Internship Description

The project involves design, development and implementation of a laser-based biomedical sensor. The sensor will be used to monitor human breath for disease diagnostics. The student will work on studying the electromagnetic spectrum of various substances, choosing the candidate optical transitions, setting up the laser-based optical setup and performing laboratory measurements to detect species concentration in trace quantities. The student will gain expertise in spectroscopy, statistical thermodynamics, optical engineering and mechanical engineering.​​​​​

Deliverables/Expectations

- Spectral line selection using state-of-the-art spectroscopic models
- Set up optical setup for performing validation measurements
- Demonstration of the sensor in "simulated breath" mixtures
- Application of the sensor to breath samples of patients
