Paper Abstract

Infrared transmitting heavy metal fluoride optical fiber has been used to separate a Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectrometer from a remote measurement point. Several types of remote sensors have been developed for concentration measurements. Remote transmission cells connected to fiber cables have been used to measure near-infrared spectra of liquids and gases. An evanescent-wave probe for obtaining spectra of highly scattering samples has been developed. Fiber-optic FTIR may be used to solve many problems in process monitoring and control.
