Paper Abstract

In this work, we present the results of the tests for NO2 detection using tilted fiber Bragg gratings (TFBGs) inscribed with a pulsed femtosecond laser and coated with the polymer P(S-b-MMA) and the NO2 sensitive molecule LuPc2. Two coating methods were carried out: using a porous and a non-porous polymer matrix. The results show that a previous treatment to create pores in the polymer matrix achieves a faster response but also a lower sensitivity compared to the non-porous matrix.
