How we measure 'reads'
A 'read' is counted each time someone views a publication summary (such as the title, abstract, and list of authors), clicks on a figure, or views or downloads the full-text. Learn more

I graduated at Università degli Studi di Genova (Italy) with a Master of Physics degree in Experimental Physics of condensed matter. My Master’s thesis was about the magneto-plasmonic of bidimensional arrays of nickel nanoparticles. On September 2017 I have started my PhD in Chemistry at University of Birmingham (UK) under Dr. Ruchi Gupta`s supervision. The final aim of this project is to design an interferometric biosensor, which can detect and investigate attached analytes (proteins, molecules, etc.) with improved sensitivity and detection limit in a way applicable for point-of-care applications.
This report describes a Young interferometer (YI) sensor for real-time imaging of refractive index (RI) along the length of microchannels. The YI comprised a unique combination of Fresnel biprism and cylindrical lens to obtain two wedge shaped light beams, which ultimately overlapped to produce the interference fringes. The measured temporal and sp...
Front Cover: In article number 1900228 by Ruchi Gupta and co‐workers, a water‐soluble chemical method for making a photo‐functionalizable hydrogel is reported for the fabrication of optical grating sensors with high (>3) aspect ratio. This grating sensor contains a dye that is sensitive to pH, resulting in changes in the diffraction pattern as the...
Volume amplitude gratings made of mesoporous hydrogels are beneficial for sensing, but are difficult to fabricate because they involve creating high aspect ratio features in soft materials. A novel photofunctionalizable hydrogel is reported and its suitability for fabricating grating sensors is demonstrated comprising of features with an aspect rat...
