Abstract

Organic semiconductors are of considerable interest for a wide range of sensing applications. This talk will present recent advances in two domains of sensing. The first part concerns the use of organic semiconductor lasers for sensing explosive vapour. We have investigated a range of organic semiconductors for this application and compare and contrast their properties. In particular we find that truxenes provide very attractive properties for explosive vapour sensing. The second domain of sensing that we report is a muscle contraction sensor. This device measures changes in muscle optical properties under either isometric or isotonic contraction.
