Abstract

Increasing fluorooptic probe sensitivity as well as strengthening the phosphorus compound tip is accomplished by attaching an electroless, electric copper plate, ~ ΒΌ " long, to the tip of the probe. A small diameter TEFLON* tube, ~ 1.5 mm ID , is then put on the rest of the probe, preventing the coated polymer from being etched away as well as protecting the fragile fiber glass probe, thereby increasing the probe's lifetime. * Trademark of E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co.

Improved Fluorooptic Probe Reliability

Increasing fluorooptic probe sensitivity as well as strengthening the phosphorus compound tip is accomplished by attaching an electroless, electric copper plate, ~ 1/4 " long, to the tip of the probe. A small diameter TEFLON* tube, ~ 1.5 mm ID , is then put on the rest of the probe, preventing the coated polymer from being etched away as well as protecting the fragile fiber glass probe, thereby increasing the probe's lifetime. * Trademark of E. I. du Pont de Nemours & Co.
