Dr SaeJune Park, a Lecturer in Terahertz (THz) Electronics and the Head of the THz Laboratory in the Centre for Electronics and the Antennas & Electromagnetics Research Group at the School of Electronic Engineering and Computer Science at Queen Mary University of London, is leading a groundbreaking project to develop novel sensors for microplastic detection in aquatic environments in collaboration with the Water Research Centre, the University of Leeds, and the National Physical Laboratory. These innovative sensors utilise future telecommunication technology i.e. THz metasurfaces, offering a faster, more sensitive, and potentially revolutionary approach to real-time monitoring microplastic pollution.
