Paper Abstract

D-shaped optical fibres are coated with silica nanoparticles by horizontal dip and slide method. Visual determination of film coverage is difficult. Thick coatings are discernible through thin film interference coloring but thinner coatings require SEM imaging. Here, we show that fluorescence imaging, using Rhodmaine B in this example, can provide some qualitative assessment of coverage.
