Paper Abstract

A fiber optic chemical sensor (FOCS) has been developed for the monitoring of trichloroethylene in drinking water. The sensor is based upon refractive index changes, where the amount of light refracted varies as the analyte interacts with the coated surface. Response is specific for TCE, reversible, and can be used for monitoring TCE in the vapor or aqueous phase.
