Optical Society Novel design for microfluidic sensor uses streams of unconfined water for a simpler and cheaper way to test for dangerous chemicals and bacteria When you shine ultraviolet light (UV) through water polluted with certain organic chemicals and bacteria, the contaminants measurably absorb the UV light and then re-emit it as visible light. Many of today’s more advanced devices for testing water are built to make use of this fluorescent property of pollutants; but the walls...
