Flexible sol-gel coating for gas sensor

Within a collaboration with Empa’s Biomimetic Membranes and Textiles Lab, a Förster resonance energy transfer (FRET) system was integrated into flexible porous silica and coated on a PVDF/HFP electrospun fiber matrix, which allows an easy incorporation in the work uniforms for individual monitoring of ammonia in occupational environments.[1]
