Congratulations to Swagato (shared first authorship), Olha and Viabhav for their publication in Advanced Functional Materials. These PhD students were scientifically advised by Tobias König as first supervisor.

The next generation of sensors requires a simple yet compact lab on chip-based precise optical detection mechanism where data interpretation can be achieved with minimum effort. Hereby, cost-efficient strategies of manufacturing both propagating surface plasmon polariton (SPP) and localized surface plasmon resonance (LSPR) sensors on flexible platforms are explored via mechanical instabilities and oblique-angled metal evaporation.
