Explosives detection by fluorescence quenching of conjugated polymers in suspended core optical fibers

Dr Georgios Tsiminis

Paper Summary: This work combines microstructured optical fibres with light-emitting plaster to create a new generation of explosives sensors. These sensors can detect TNT-like explosives at parts-per-million concentrations while providing accurate information on the amount of explosive present in the sample, making them a powerful tool for forensic applications.
