Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingBook chapterResearchpeer-review


Fluorescent-based sensors have proven to be one of the most popular and widely used modes of transduction in the design of sensors owing to the high sensitivity, ease of use, and versatility. As a result, there has been a huge number of biosensors, chemosensors, immunoassays, and nanosensors developed for an extensive range of applications from environmental monitoring, food monitoring, to medical diagnostics and bioimaging. In this chapter, we give a comprehensive review of the fluorescent sensors including discussions on the different modes of fluorescence and how they are used in sensor design. We also discuss the different types of fluorescent materials, which are popularly used in sensor design and give prominent recently published highlights.
