Paper Abstract

Miniaturized fiber optic sensor probes continue to be developed in a number of research laboratories around the world. Such fiber optic probes originate from work undertaken on the development of nanometric probes used in scanning near-field optical microscopes. The probes can be converted to sensors for highly localized chemical measurements by attaching the appropriate chemical indicators to the probe tips. We use the term 'micro- optrode' to describe fiber-optic chemical sensors possessing such high spatial resolution. This paper presents a brief summary of the progress that has taken place in the development of the micro-optrode and includes recent results obtained in our laboratory with such sensors.
