Paper Abstract

We describe in this paper the design and characteristics of real time, high sensitivity, optical sensors, for the detection of pollutant gases in the atmosphere. Molecular engineering applied to the design of the sensing material leads to good selective and sensitivity in the ppm range when the gas plays the role of a dopant in an organic semiconductor. Methods of preparation and optical design are discussed as well.
