1 is devoted to three-layer fiber waveguide sensors which consist of a silica glass substrate (S), a metal layer (M) and an aqueous media (A) denoted as SMA sensor or chalcogenide glass substrate (Ch), and a metal layer (M) and aqueous media (A) denoted as ChMA sensor.
55 [micrometer] wavelengths of silica glass fibers; development of polarization maintaining optical fibers for coherent detection systems to overcome the polarization degeneracy of conventional cylindrical fibers; development of low cost lightwave transceivers to allow cost-effective deployment of fiber to subscriber systems; development of ultralow-loss fluoride based fibers with two orders of magnitude lower loss than silica based fibers, (if techniques that result in almost zero loss splices can be developed for use with these fibers, repeaterless transcontinental spans can be achieved); and development of practical semiconductor sources and detectors for 2.
