Paper Abstract

Two novel types of planar waveguide sensors for the chemical domain are introduced. Both are realized by thin film technologies. They consist of multilayered structures coated by a very thin organic overlayer that is able to absorb the species to be measured out of the environment. This absorbtion results in a change in its dielectric function. In the first sensor to be demonstrated this change is measured using a surface plasmon mode as a probe. In the second one the radiationless energy transfer from luminescent centres incorporated in one of the layers to the overlayer serves as a probe.
