Paper Abstract

The development of new infrared transmitting optical fibers with low optical losses, sufficient mechanical strength, and temperature range to meet the demanding conditions of many process environments; and the availability of improved, ruggedized low-cost FTIR spectrometers have made in situ FTIR measurements possible. This paper discusses the development of in situ fiber optic remote FTIR spectroscopy and its application to the characterization of thin polymer coatings on substrates and the development of evanescent wave in situ fiber optic remote FTIR spectroscopy and its application to assaying components of biological fluids.
