Chemical Sensing Using Fiber Cavity Ring-Down Spectroscopy
Waveguide-based cavity ring-down spectroscopy (CRD) can be used for quantitative measurements of chemical concentrations in small amounts of liquid, in gases or in films. The change in ring-down time can be correlated to ...
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 ...
Monitoring of Vapor Uptake by Refractive Index and Thickness Measurements in Thin Films
We report a method for real-time monitoring of vapor uptake by simultaneous detection of the refractive index, 𝑛 , and thickness, 𝑑 , of thin transparent films with a precision of 𝛿𝑛=10 −4 and 𝛿𝑑<100 nm . The setup ...
