Paper Abstract

An optical fibre based exhaust gas sensor has been developed from low-cost mid-infrared components which is capable of detecting carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from both diesel and petrol engines. The optical fibre sensor is not cross sensitive to other gaseous species in the exhaust such as water vapour (H2O), carbon monoxide (CO), oxides of nitrogen (NOx) or oxides of sulphur (SOx). Initial tests of this sensor on a modern diesel engine are outlined in this paper.
