  • In this letter, we present a nanophotonic device consisting of plasmonic nanopatch array (NPA) with integrated metal–organic framework (MOF) for enhanced infrared absorption gas sensing. By designing a gold NPA on a sapphire substrate, we are able to achieve enhanced optical field that spatially overlaps with the MOF layer, which can adsorb carbon dioxide (CO 2) with high capacity. Additionally, experimental results show that this hybrid plasmonic–MOF device can effectively increase the infrared absorption path of on-chip gas sensors by more than 1100-fold. Lastly, the demonstration of infrared absorption spectroscopy of CO 2 using the hybrid plasmonic–MOF device proves amore » promising strategy for future on-chip gas sensing with ultra-compact size.« less
  • The magnetorefractive effect (MRE) has previously been demonstrated to be an effective method for the remote sensing of magnetoresistance. These studies were made using an infrared (IR) spectrometer, which is ideal for technique development and fundamental material characterization but lacks the simplicity of a fixed-frequency measurement in which the intensity is monitored as a function of applied magnetic field--mimicking a traditional four-point probe electrical measurement. Using a carbon dioxide laser as an IR light source, the design of a fixed-frequency instrument in the reflection geometry is presented and tested. Taking into account both drifts and short-term fluctuations, a light intensitymore » detection signal-to-noise ratio of better than 200:1 is achieved in applied magnetic fields of {+-}12 kOe enabling detection of MRE of 0.15%. The fixed-frequency instrument provides a noncontact probe of magnetoresistance with the potential for spatial resolution and angular variation.« less
  • A combined experimental and computational approach utilizing tunable CO{sub 2} lasers and chemometric analysis was employed to detect chemicals and their concentrations in the field under controlled release conditions. We collected absorption spectra for four organic gases in the laboratory by lasing 40 lines of the laser in the 9.3{endash}10.8-{mu}m range. The ability to predict properly the chemicals and their respective concentrations depends on the nature of the target, the atmospheric conditions, and the round-trip distance. In 39 of the 45 field experiments, the identities of the released chemicals were identified correctly without predictions of false positives or false negatives.more » {copyright} 1997 Optical Society of America« less
