Long-Period Gratings in Chemical Sensing
A chemical sensor system consisting of a coated long period grating, which was spliced into a fiber loop cavity, has been prepared and characterized. Designer coatings based on polydimethylsiloxane and nanostructured ...
Detection of Lead Contamination of Water and VOC Contamination of Air Using SOI Micro-Optical Devices
Micro-photonic SOI Mach-Zehnder interferometers were coated with solid-phase micro-extraction materials derived from polydimethylsiloxane to enable sensing of volatile organic compounds of the BTEX class in air. A different ...
Chemical Sensor Based on a Long-Period Fibre Grating Modified by a Functionalized Polydimethylsiloxane Coating
A chemical sensor based on a coated long-period grating has been prepared and characterized. Designer coatings based on polydimethylsiloxane were prepared by the incorporation of diphenylsiloxane and titanium cross-linker ...
Visual Observation of Redistribution and Dissolution of Palladium During the Suzuki–Miyaura Reaction
Now you see it, now you don't: A specially designed reactor that heats only a small area of Pd foil during a Suzuki-Miyaura coupling permits observation of the surface changes during the reaction. Dissolution of Pd occurs ...
