ABSTRACT
This paper presents the research made at the Laboratory of Optics, Lasers and Systems (LOLS) of the Faculty of Sciences of University of Lisbon, Portugal, in the field of fiber-based sensors. Three areas are considered: sensor encapsulation for natural aqueous environments, refractive index modulation and laser micropatterning. We present the main conclusions on the issues and parameters to take in consideration for the encapsulation process and results of its design and application. Mid-infrared laser radiation was applied to produce long period fiber gratings and nanosecond pulses of near-infrared Q-switch laser were used for micropatterning.

No MeSH data available.

f2-sensors-12-02654: Picture of an encapsulation device designed for fiber-based sensors in aqueous environments.

Mentions: The final aspect to be taken in consideration is that the device will have to be subjected to maintenance operations during its operational lifetime. This implies that the project should take this in consideration in order to guarantee that the replacement of filters, cleaning of the system and replacement of sensors are fast and easily accomplished. Figure 2 presents a picture of the device developed and implemented in the Ria de Aveiro, Portugal.
