    Abstract

    Over the last several decades the communications industry has developed small, high-light transmitting fiber-optic materials. Because of their inherently non-perturbing nature fiber optics have found wide spread use in many diverse areas of analytical spectroscopy. Of all the spectroscopic techniques, fiber-optic-based fluorescence has probably enjoyed the greatest popularity. Unfortunately, while successful analyses have been achieved via fiber-optic probes, only a fraction (that is, spectral information) of the total information content from the fluorescence process has been utilized. In this paper, recent results from our laboratory are presented for the successful implementation of the remaining dynamic and steady-state fluorimetric measurements in conjunction with fiber-optic sensing.
