Abstract
In the article a system for measuring the concentration of chlorophyll in methanol solution have been developed. Microstructural waveguide co- doped with Yb3+/Tm3+ ions was used as a sensing element. The waveguide consisted of thirty-seven glass capillaries arranged hexagonally was fabricated using the stacking and drawing method. Due to the excitation of the active core by laser diode (λ=980nm), an effective energy transfer between Yb3+ and Tm3+ ions occurs. As a result, two luminescence bands at 480 nm (1G43H6) and 650 nm (1G4→3F4) were obtained. Concentration of chlorophyll methanol solution in the range from 2.75 to 13.66 [mh/dms] was measured. Linear dependence of the decrease of luminescence intensity of thulium ions on its concentration was obtained. The sensitivity of the developed system was 0.005 [1/(mg/dm3)].
