Paper Abstract

The use of FOCS for environmental applications, namely, for monitoring spills of HC or leaking underground HC storage tanks, is discussed. The current FOCS design comes in two configurations: the field unit, permanently installed at one or more monitoring sites, and connected to a central monitoring station, and the hand-held unit, designed for rapid on-site evaluation. The sensor's performance in HC vapor at 100 percent relative humidity and at 20 C, and at the vapor-water interface is illustrated.
