Paper Abstract

Chlorine content in drinking water is hazardous for health. In this presentation a fiber optic evanescent field absorption sensor is demonstrated which can be implemented for the detection of the content of chlorine in drinking water. The method of demonstration is based on the absorption of evanescent waves through the development of color, which is achieved due to the reaction of diethyl phenylene diamine with chlorine present in water. A bent U-shaped probe is implemented in order to improve the sensitivity.
