• Chemical Sensing Using The Life, Death, And Rebirth Of A Photon 

      Andrews, Nicholas L. P.
      In this thesis, optical sensing platforms using the “life, death and rebirth” of a photon are utilised to quantify and characterise chemicals in various samples. In this analogy, the “life” of a photon is characterised by ...
