Characterization of a photoluminescence-based fiber optic sensor system
Measuring multiple analyte concentrations is essential for a wide range of environmental applications, which are important for the pursuit of public safety and health. Target analytes are often toxic chemical compounds found in groundwater or soil. However, in-situ measurement of such analytes still faces various challenges. Some of these challenges are rapid response for near-real time monitoring, simultaneous measurements of multiple analytes in a complex target environment, and high sensitivity for low analyte concentration without sample pretreatment. This thesis presents a low-cost, robust, ...
