Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


Molecular probes, also referred to as chemosensors, are molecules capable of transforming chemical information, such as the presence or concentration of a specific target species, into an analytically useful, identifiable signal. These signals are commonly either electrical or optical. This chapter is an introduction to molecular probes and the respective optical signatures used for chemical sensing. Features reviewed include the categories of chemo-optical response including absorbance or fluorescence, as well as methods for calibration.
