Remote infrared chemical sensing using highly durable AlF3-based glass fibers

Not Accessible

Your library or personal account may give you access

Abstract

Unclad, low-loss AlF3-based glass fibers with enhanced chemical durability have been successfully used for the first time to our knowledge as intrinsic evanescent infrared sensors for monitoring liquid chemicals. Different liquids with absorption bands between 1 and 4.5 μm, such as alcohol, acetonitrile, and mixtures of alcohol/acetonitrile and water/acetonitrile, have been tested. These fibers have also been used successfully as distributed sensors for simultaneous monitoring of different chemical species.
