Paper Abstract

The fabrication of different types of optical fiber sensors using nanofilms implementing different optical fibers based architectures will be explained. Thanks to the control on the nanometer scale of the thickness and composition of the nanofilms it is possible to fabricate very selective and sensitive sensors. It will be demonstrated that fiber optic sensors and nanotechnology have come together, in recent years, to provide new opportunities for sensing. The possibility of depositing sensitive nanofilms with thicknesses under the wavelength of the interrogating optical light signal, make necessary to re-invent many of the classical photonic sensors and devices. New phenomena and properties are appearing.
