Compact fiber-optic fluorosensor employing light-emitting ultraviolet diodes as excitation sources

Ek, Sara; Anderson, Benjamin LU and Svanberg, Sune LU (2008) In Spectrochimica Acta Part B: Atomic Spectroscopy 63. p.349-353
Abstract
A compact fluorosensor using three different ultraviolet light-emission diodes as excitation sources for fiber-optic recording of fluorescence

10 spectra from samples is described. A compact integrated spectrometer with linear array wavelength recording is used, yielding a spectral resolution

11 of about 8 nm. In two system implementations ultraviolet light-emitting diodes at 300, 340 and 395 nm, or at 360, 385 and 410 nm were used as

12 excitation sources with typical emission halfwidths of 12 nm, each combined with a matching long-path colored-glass filter automatically brought

13 into the fluorescence light flow for suppression of reflected light. Spectra from measurements on vegetation, human skin... (More)
