2D Layered material on microcantilever as a multi-analyte sensor


  • Sensing excess pesticides in soil using microcantilever bending
  • Identify chemical nature of pesticides using photothermal spectroscopy


  • This will allow detection of the chemical nature and concentration with high selectivity, a major improvement over current techniques.

Key Milestones

  • Deposition of MoS2 at various condition and characterization
  • Deposition of MoS2 under microcantilever conditions and controlled characterizations
  • Detect various pesticides by PCDS technique
  • Determine commercial and economic viability
