Abstract

Work toward the utilisation of an organic laser as a bacterial growth detector is presented here. The sensor used is an optically excited 2nd order DFB (distributed feedback laser) made of oligofluorene truxene. In the drive towards a practical bacterial growth detector, temperature stability and the optimum growth conditions of bacteria are challenges to be overcome. The resultant DFB laser exhibits a sensitivity of 9 nm/RIU.
