Abstract
The first demonstration of a detection scheme for hydrogen peroxide based on Raman spectroscopy in suspended core optical fibers is presented. This detector combines the advantages of Raman spectroscopy, such as the unique identification of a molecular fingerprint, with a microstructured fiber architecture, which enables low volumes processing and detection. Hydrogen peroxide is chosen as a target molecule since it is a key component in home-made explosives. These results highlight the feasibility of the proposed scheme as a low false-positive detection platform.
