The aim of this project is to create a concept design for a novel fluorescence-based instrument for the objective assessment of wine quality. This will be done to meet the demand from winemakers for a fast, easy-to-use measurement of the chemicals important for the sensorial attributes of wine. The project will achieve this by establishing an objective rapid method for determining low concentration wine quality parameters using fluorescence spectroscopy and advanced multivariate data modeling.
The PhD is a so-called industrial PhD – a collaboration between FOSS and Åsmund Rinnan. But more importantly, the PhD student is Helene Halberg which you should contact for more information.
