Optical sensor for pH monitoring using a layer-by-layer deposition technique emphasizing enhanced stability and re-usability

Article English OPEN
Raoufi, N.; Surre, F.; Rajarajan, M.; Sun, T.; Grattan, K. T. V.;

Stable and reliable operation of an optical sensor for pH monitoring is important for many industrial applications of these types of devices. The layer-by-layer deposition technique is a simple and versatile method used to deposit a sensitive thin film on such an optica... View more
