Nanoparticle-Based Optical Sensor Arrays


As in many other methods integrating nanoparticles (NPs), the chemical nose/tongue strategy has also greatly progressed since NPs entrance to this field. The fascinating tunable physicochemical properties of NPs has made them powerful candidates in array-based sensing platforms, allowing the development of real-time, sensitive and portable systems which are able to target complex mixtures of analytes. In particular, the unique optical properties of NPs have the key role in providing promising array-based sensing approaches. This review will describe the general aspects and the proceedings of optical sensor arrays. The main advantages of the collection of cross-reactive sensing elements will be discussed and the wide range of their applications will be reviewed. The remaining challenges and future directions on NP-based optical sensor arrays will be also highlighted.
