Title: Design and Development of Fiber Optic Sensors for Trace Detection of Certain Environmental Pollutants
Author: Suresh Kumar, P; Dr. Radhakrishnan, P
Abstract: In recent years,photonics has emerged as an essential technology related to such diverse fields like laser technology,fiber optics,communication,optical signal processing,computing,entertainment,consumer electronics etc.Availabilities of semiconductor lasers and low loss fibers have also revolutionized the field of sensor technology including telemetry. There exist fiber optic sensors which are sensitive,reliable.light weight and accurate devices which find applications in wide range of areas like biomedicine,aviation,surgery,pollution monitoring etc.,apart from areas in basic sciences.The present thesis deals with the design,fabrication and characterization of a variety of cost effective and sensitive fiber optic sensors for the trace detetction of certain environment pollutants in air and water.The sensor design is carried out using the techniques like evanescent waves,micro bending and long period gratings.
