Photonics for future chemical sensing


Fluorescence Sensor Technology
The principle of fluorescence sensors uses the emission characteristics of specifically sensitive dyes. The dyes' fluorescence behavior depends on the concentration of the analyte towards which they react sensitively. Oxygen is a typical fluorescence quencher. Nowadays, measuring oxygen conentrations is one of the key applications in fluorescence sensor technology.
Surface Plasmon Resonance (SPR)
Sentronic develops optical transducers – components for the gas and biosensor technology based on thin film effects such as the surface plasmon resonance.
