Photonic sensor head for ammonia monitoring

Photonic sensor head for ammonia sensing operations by use of the free space point sensor, remote interrogation system.

The head comprises a nanocomposite material such as for example silica-nickel chloride system or a hybrid polymer based nanocomposite as well as transmissive or retro-reflecting units for respective use.

The head operates in a diffractive mode by utilising own diffractive properties or by means of diffractive element etched on the material or the substrate to allow interrogation by use of light beam.

The sensor head is used either as a single unit or in a multi-parametric unit for combined operations.
