Optical fibers have been used in numerous sensing applications. Specifically, polymer-clad silica optical fibers have been employed for purposes of indirect chemical or biochemical sensors. These sensors are based on the interaction of guided light beams with extrinsic reagents immobilized in the fiber cladding. For this demand, it is necessary to enrich the fiber cladding with optical reagents with suitable optical properties without mechanical damage of cladding. Dipcoating and diffusion process have been studied and compared with respect to effective incorporation of appropriate quantities of selected organic reagents into polymer cladding. Short sections of sensitized optical fibers have been tested for potential using in ammonia fiber optic sensors.
