Paper Abstract

CdTe Quantum Dots (4 nm of diameter) have been successfully deposited on the inner part of hollow core fibers using the Layer-by-Layer Electrostatic Self-Assembly method. The architecture of the sensor consists on a short section of a hollow core fiber tapered at both ends and spliced to standard multimode optical fibers. Taking advantage of the dependence on temperature of the green fluorescent emission of the Quantum Dot sensitive nanofilms, optical fiber sensors were fabricated and experimentally demonstrated.
