Munster Technological University (Ireland) has launched a €7 million, EU-funded research project called PASSEPARTOUT at its Centre for Advanced Photonics and Process Analysis (CAPPA). The project aims to develop low-cost optical sensors to be applied to air-quality monitoring, by creating a three-level optical gas analyzer network to operate in urban environments. The project will make use of photoacoustic and photothermal spectroscopy to create compact photonic sensors that will be mounted on buildings, vehicles, and drones for real-time air-quality monitoring. PASSEPARTOUT will specifically develop and deploy miniature, hyperspectral optical-based sensors based on QEPAS (quartz-enhanced photoacoustic spectroscopy) and PTI…READ MORE
