Abstract

With increased demand for process automation and real-time system monitoring, interest in remote sensing is increasing. Optical sensors that can non-destructively assess chemical properties, components and concentrations can be combined with a wide range of optical components to produce discrete, integrated devices for a wide range of applications. Optical sensors have significant advantages compared to conventional sensor types; both, in terms of their physical properties and the ability to use existing telecommunications technology to process and transmit optical signals via optical fibre.Initial work has focused upon exploring the photo-isomerism of functionalised azobenzene species linked to a silica surface and developing this concept into a functional device that can act as a simple optical switch.
