Optical microfiber sensor for heavy metal ion detection [thesis]

Stephanie Hui Kit Yap
Heavy metal pollution in water environment poses a serious threat and of great environmental concern because they cannot be degraded or destroyed completely. In fact, heavy metal tends to accumulate over time within living organism and the rate of accumulation can be faster than they are excreted. Therefore, continuous monitoring of the level of heavy metal contaminants in water resources is crucial to keep them below the standard maximum permissible limit of the particular geographical area.
