Paper Abstract

We have developed a fiber-optic chemical sensor technology for the remote monitoring of various volatile solvents. The accuracy, linearity, and sensitivity of the sensor (<5 ppb by weight in water, determined by comparison with standard gas chromatographic measurements) are sufficient for environmental monitoring of at least trichloroethlyene (TCE) and chloroform.
