Paper Abstract

The presented measurement system can be used for environment monitoring in any laboratory or field, hard conditions: for observations the change of the acting forces or pressures as well for observations of the any chemical compositions in air or water in places difficult for human reach. The "heart" of the measurements system is the portable CCD-spectrometer detecting the signals coming from the samples chamber (where is placed the optical force sensor or the medium under inspection). The signals are sending by an optic-fibre bunch from the sensor to the spectrometer. Specialised software allows for collection and visualisation of the spectra and calculation - on line - the value of the force acting on the sensor or changes in a chemical composition in the medium under control.
