Based on the evanescent wave fibre optic absorption approach, a cost-effective and sensitive chemical sensor for the detection of Fe+2 has been developed. In the sensing mechanism, a high-quality LED source is used. As the sensing arm, a multimode sensor grade plastic clad silica (PCS) fibre is used, with the centre cladding portion removed to interact with the surrounding region (Fe+2 ions). In this experiment, the unclad area of the PCS fibre is utilised as a sensing element. For the detection of Fe+2 in water, the sensor developed is very sensitive over a dynamic range of concentrations from 0.1ppm to 100ppm.
