Paper Abstract

A series of FT-IR spectrometer based remote sensing systems have been developed taking advantage of the new technology of IR transmitting optical fibers. The systems may be used to monitor the chemical composition of solid, liquid and gas phase samples. An array of remote sensors may be interfaced to a single FT-IR spectrometer through a multi-fiber launch module. An optical channel selector (OCS) allows the sensors to be addressed with a single opto-mechanically multiplexed detector system. Remote collimated beam sensors have been developed for web monitoring and liquid and gas phase sensing. An optimized multi-detector web monitoring system has been developed for moving web sensing on optically dttuse webs. Quantitative data will be presented for a number of remote spectroscopic measurements.
