Functional nanoscale interfaces enable the desirable optoelectronic properties of nanostructured materials to be coupled to the chemical and biological worlds. This in turn enables the creation of active materials for use in sensors. In our work we exploit the highly variable and uniquely tuneable nature of the nanoscale interface to create derivitized materials that are assembled into sensing arrays. The differential interactions of a sample with our sensor arrays leads to a ‘fingerprinting’ strategy for sensing and detection, and I will describe examples of luminescent and plasmonic nanomaterials that we are applying in this way to challenges in environmental remediation and beverage analysis.
