Respirable Fibre Measurement from Light Scattering Patterns

Lead Research Organisation: University of Hertfordshire
Department Name: School of Physics, Astronomy and Maths


TBC- student is CDT student in year 1 of PhD. This record will be updated when project proposal is written (summer 2021)
Preliminary / outline description:
Fibrous particle inhalation can cause a range of respiratory diseases. Current detection methods require filtration and manual counting under a microscope. You will work with state-of-the-art optical instrumentation to develop a technique for the real-time detection and measurement of airborne fibres.
