Patients suffering from the lung disease cystic fibrosis are prone to respiratory infections with Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Such bacterial infections cause progressive damage to the lungs and airways and are the most important cause of mortality. A quick, patient-friendly, reliable and sensitive method is needed to detect infections in an early stage. The IOP project ‘Integrated FTS’ will develop a gas sensor based on absorption spectroscopy that meets these requirements. Other application areas will also benefit from the sensor.
