Paper Abstract

Porous glass (PG) is specific optical component that has excellent optical features and wide surface area simultaneously. It gives possibilities to design integrated devices for Quantum Electronics, Nonlinear Optics and Chemistry. In particular it can be applied as a sensitive element in optical sensors. We have investigated interaction of gas molecules with PG surface. We used near IR spectroscopy, gasdynamics and capillary condensation methods, and atomic force microscope. Molecules adsorbed on PG surface drastically change their optical properties. The main problem of usage PG as a sensor is to incorporate it to measuring scheme. In parallel with experimental investigation we have been simulated the PG-sensor operation with a computer.
