Paper Abstract

A simple fiber optic chemical sensor is reported which may be used to detect in situ and in real time concentrations of gases and liquids. The sensor, comprised of a single LED source and a cladding-free multimode fiber, operates on the principle of evanescent field and differential spectroscopy. Exhibiting a linear response to relative humidity, this sensor selectively detects water vapor while remaining insensitive to source power fluctuations.
