Prof. Brian Cunningham and team show that they can have their biosensor system lase at two separate wavelengths, where one wavelength serves as a reference to the active biosensor

Published Date:May 31, 2013

Prof. Brian Cunningham and team shows that they can have their biosensor system "lase" at two separate wavelengths, where one wavelength serves as a reference to the active biosensor.  It achieves very effective noise reduction, which allows the researchers to perform some very challenging detection of small molecules (like drugs).
