      Ionogel-based Nitrite and Nitrate Sensor for Water Control at the Point-of-Need 

      Saez Castaño, Janire; Arana Momoitio, Gorka; Fernández Cuadrado, Luis Ángel; Benito López, Fernando (Elsevier, 2016)
      The increment of uncontrolled nutrients concentration in water is the subject of increasing environmental concern. In particular, the increment of nitrate causes the eutrophication of algae, leading to fauna and flora ...

      Light-responsive Materials for Microfluidic Applications 

      Ter Schiphorst, Jeroen; Saez Castaño, Janire; Diamond, Dermot; Benito López, Fernando; Schenning, Albertus P. H. J. (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2018-03-07)
      While the microfluidic device itself may be small, often the equipment required to control fluidics in thechip unit is large e.g. pumps, valves and mixing units, which can severely limit practical use and functionalscalability. ...

      Reusable Ionogel-based Photo-actuators in a Lab-on-a-disc 

      Saez Castaño, Janire; Glennon, Thomas; Czugala, Monika; Tudor, Aleksandru; Ducree, Jens; Florea, Larisa; Benito López, Fernando (Elsevier, 2017-11-04)
      This paper describes the design, fabrication and performance of a reusable ionogel-based photo-actuator, in-situ photopolymerised into a lab-on-a-disc microfluidic device, for flow control. The ionogel provides an effective ...
