Sidiroglou, Fotios and Nguyen, Thinh B (2011) Synthesis of chitosan films on optical fibers for detection of ammonia vapors. In: Quantum electronics conference & lasers and electro-optics (CLEO/IQEC/PACIFIC RIM), 2011. IEEE, pp. 1742-1744.


A chitosan-coated optical fiber sensor for the detection of ammonia chemical vapors is presented. The exposure of the chitosan to ammonia gas causes a change in refractive index of the chitosan. This change is detected using a simple fiber optic refractive index sensor.
