Abstract
A new technique for the optical sensing of dissolved oxygen (DO) is proposed here. It is based on the enhancement in fluorescence yield of TPP dye at (lambda) equals 656 nm, when excited by He-Cd blue laser of (lambda) equals 441 nm in the presence of dissolved oxygen. The sensor head was fabricated by cladding the ARTON fiber core with the poly-4-methyl-1- pentene polymer matrix suitably doped with Tetraphenylporphine dye. This sensor head, when placed in a test chamber and end-pumped by He-Cd laser, generates the intense fluorescence at 656 nm. Its intensity was noticed to increase with increasing the amount of DO. A theoretical model of the sensor response was designed and is also discussed.
