Yu-Hsuan Cheng successfully defended his Ph.D. He took our lab technique from TRL 2 to 5. It is now ready to move out of the lab into the fieldable prototype.

A feature story in C&EN on our research in developing sensors for PFAS. A collaborative effort with the Kamalesh Sirkar group and supported by Purshotam Juriasingani, PE, CEM, and recently by funding from U.S. Geological Survey (USGS).
