[INVITED] Developments in optical fibre sensors for industrial applications

  The development of intrinsic optical fiber pH sensors based on fluorescence from novel coumarin dyes which are covalently immobilized onto the distal end of the fiber is described. The sensors provide response in the pH range of 0.5 − 6 with good stability over 24 h. The response time of the sensors is approximately 25 s. The sensors show no sensitivity to ionic strength (IS) and have excellent photostability.
