Fibre Optic Sensor for the Detection of Hidden, Indoor Mould

This project is in partnership with AllerGen. Indoor moulds are recognized as important contributors to respiratory illnesses such as allergy and asthma. However, the detection of mould in houses may be problematic, particularly when mould is concealed within wall cavities. Despite that these sources of mould are hidden, they still contribute spores into the room air, presenting a recognized health threat.
