Strathclyde Open Access research that creates ripples...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of research papers by University of Strathclyde researchers, including by Strathclyde physicists involved in observing gravitational waves and black hole mergers as part of the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory (LIGO) - but also other internationally significant research from the Department of Physics. Discover why Strathclyde's physics research is making ripples...

Strathprints also exposes world leading research from the Faculties of Science, Engineering, Humanities & Social Sciences, and from the Strathclyde Business School.

Abstract

We review recent developments in optical fiber gas detection using absorption spectroscopy, including open-path gas sensors using fiber coupled micro-optic cells, evanescent wave sensors using D-shaped optical fibers and holey fibers; sensor systems using broadband sources and laser sources; techniques for sensitivity enhancement and noise reduction; and various multi-point gas detection systems.
