Abstract:
An integrated optical waveguide is described that can measure surface concentrations of ions while immersed in an ionic solution, especially the commercially interesting case of ionic copper. Several such sensors were manufactured and tested. The theory behind this measurement technology is described. Techniques for the manufacture and experimental measurement are described. The devices made were able to measure surface concentrations on the order of 10 12 atoms per square centimeter. Several potential methods for improving the performance are given.
