In the LOTUS project, partners are developing carbon nanotube-based sensors capable of measuring different parameters as for example temperature, chlorine level, pH level, etc. These sensors are tested and validated in different settings in the five LOTUS use cases.

Our project partner, Bérengère Lebental from the University Gustave Eiffel in France released a scientific publication which provides an overview of how these sensors are measuring different chemicals in water.

“While water quality monitoring has particularly strong societal and environmental impacts, a lot of critical sensing needs remain unmet by commercial technologies. In the present review, we show across 20 water monitoring analytes and 90 references that carbon nanotube-based electrochemical sensors, chemistors and field-effect transistors can meet these needs.”
