Paper Abstract

Spectroscopic characterisation of water soluble porphyrins using a structured optical fibre are presented and discussed. Porphyrin thin-films were also fabricated inside the holes of structured fibres. The thin-films self-assemble inside the fibres leading to energy coupling between the molecules. These are the first steps towards future chemically tailored optical fibre sensors for molecular detection.
