In the LOTUS project, partners are developing carbon nanotube-based sensor capable of measuring different parameters such as 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 on the calibration method used for the sensors to monitor chlorine and pH.

“Societal demands in the field of air and water pollution monitoring require the ability to simultaneously detect a wide variety of chemical elements at very low concentrations in complex environments using compact and low-cost sensor devices.”

“While other tested calibration methods only allowed the monitoring of active chlorine, our solution enables monitoring of both active chlorine and pH with quantified and reasonable uncertainties.”
