Researchers at Chalmers University of Technology, along with several partners, have developed an optical sensor that can detect record low levels of hydrogen.
Hydrogen plays a critical role in the switch to renewable energy, however; when mixed with air, this renewable energy source becomes dangerously explosive. Because of this, it is essential to detect hydrogen leaks as quickly as possible.
The full report, titled ‘Inverse designed plasmonic metasurface with parts per billion optical hydrogen detection,’ was published in the scientific journal Nature Communications.
