Paper Abstract

A fluorescence sensor system is proposed that integrates emission and detection methods as well as optical and electronic components in a thin film geometry. Predicted properties of this sensor include: increased sensitivity, shielding form unwanted radiation, wavelength filtering, potential operation at high temperatures, and miniaturization. The sensor can be tuned to measure a wide variety of species by varying its thin film corrugation periodicity, in particular, the sensor can be used to detect NOx.
