Abstract An optical fibre turn-on fluorescent sensor for the detection of mercury ions has been developed based on the use of immobilized organic fluorophore Rhod-5N. When the fibre was only used to deliver excitation laser and collection signal by dipping it into the mixture solution of the fluorophore and mercury ions, the detection limit was found to be as low as 0.3 ppb in aqueous solution, which is 10 times lower than that previously reported with both excitation source and fluorescence… CONTINUE READING
