Paper Abstract

Results of research on real-time distributed monitoring of agents and products of materials deterioration will be presented. The potential of integration of functional polymers and optical wave-guides as tools for monitoring materials chemistries will be discussed. In such hybrid sensing systems, analyte recognition is carried out through the selection process inherent in the fiber optic poro-selective cladding materials, while transduction is carried out by the guided evanescent field which is spectrally modulated according to the level of the target analyte species present.
