Multiple light taps in a plastic optical fiber provides a possibility of chemical sensing along its entire length. Unlike some point-by-point measurement techniques like fluorescence endoscopy, the technique described here makes it possible to sense large areas simultaneously and should be useful as an environmental chemical sensor.
