A fiber-optic cyclodextrin-based sensor.


This paper describes the development of a fiber-optic cyclodextrin-based (FCD) sensor. The device uses laser excitation and fluorescence detection with beta-cyclodextrin as the reagent phase, immobilized at the tip of an optical fiber. The sensitivity of the FCD sensor is 14 times as great as that of a bare optical fiber when measurements are made with the… (More)
