Abstract

In this tutorial review, we describe the current state of the art in water sensors and provide an overview of the major advances made in this field post 2000. The field is currently still in its early development stages and subject to continuous improvements, and the current work provides a structured approach describing different sensing mechanisms and potential future applications associated with each of these. With these developments and their potential implications for the diverse scientific fields requiring tight control over the water content, we strongly believe the discipline is potentially at the threshold of translation into more widespread application and we hope the current review might allow for an expedited process thereof.
