• Chemical Sensor Based on a Long-Period Fibre Grating Modified by a Functionalized Polydimethylsiloxane Coating 

      Barnes, Jack A.; Dreher, Marian; Plett, Krista; Brown, R. Stephen; Crudden, M. Cathleen; Loock, Hans-Peter (2016-07-05)
      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 ...
    • Gas Sensing Using Polymer-Functionalized Deformable Fabry–Perot Interferometers 

      St-Gelais, Raphael; Peter, Yves-Alain; Mackey, Gillian; Saunders, John; Zhou, Jingjing; Leblanc-Hotte, Antoine; Poulin, Alexandre; Barnes, Jack A.; Loock, Hans-Peter; Brown, R. Stephen (2016-03-03)
      We report a chemical vapor sensor in which polymer swelling, upon analyte absorption, is used to deform an on-chip silicon Fabry–Perot interferometer (FPI). The magnitude of the deformation, recorded through the resonance ...
    • Long-Period Gratings in Chemical Sensing 

      Barnes, Jack A.; Brown, R. Stephen; Cipot-Wechsler, Judy; Crudden, M. Cathleen; Du, Jenny; Loock, Hans-Peter; Plett, Krista (2016-03-21)
      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 ...
