Paper Abstract

The design and fabrication of a fiber optic pH sensor working on the basis of evanescent wave absorption is presented. A pH sensitive dye is immobilized on the uncladded portion of the optic fiber by sol-gel route. The sensitivity of the device is found to increase when multiple sol-gel coatings are used as the cladding in the sensing region. The sensor response and its dynamic range are reported for two pH indicator dyes, vis. bromocresol purple and bromocresol green.
