Paper Abstract

The availability of miniaturized spectrometers and bright LEDs makes possible the implementation of compact spectrophotometers which can be used for monitoring parameters in a wide range of industrial and biomedical applications. The introduction of fiber optic technology presents several advantages for online spectroscopy. This work presents compact portable instrumentation for absorption and reflection spectroscopy in the visible spectral range that uses optical fiber technology to conduct automatic online monitoring without sampling. It is suitable for any kind of industiral process control where continuous colorimetry of liquid samples or surfaces is a prime requisite.
