Abstract

Abstract The use of optical fibres for the measurement of ozone based on the optical absorption of UV light at 254nm and visible light at 600nm is investigated and tested. Sensing in the UV region allows for highly sensitive detectors due to its high absorption in that region. The visible region has a significantly lower absorption of ozone and so it is possible to monitor high ozone concentrations. Calculations based on the Beer–Lambert law are presented to demonstrate the high resolution of the UV based sensor in determining the concentration of ozone in the range of 0–1mg/l and the ability of the visible based sensor to measure high concentrations over a wide range of 25–126mg/l.
