Low-cost, reliable, miniaturized gas sensors capable of fast, accurate, and in-situ monitoring of gas compositions in harsh environment are essential in developing high-efficiency, clean energy technologies. These sensors permit intelligent process control and optimization of power plant operations, which improves the energy efficiency and system reliability, reduces emissions, and minimizes the maintenance cost. In the past few decades, significant progress has been made in developing physical sensors for measuring various physical quantities under high temperature and high pressure conditions. However, currently available gas chemical sensors cannot withstand the hostile environment found in fossil fuel energy systems. In this paper, we present our exploratory research on nanomaterial enabled fiber optic gas sensors for in-situ chemical monitoring under high temperatures.
