Abstract

In this chapter we report on the filling of the air holes of hollow-core optical fibers (HOFs) with single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). The infiltration of SWCNTs inside the HOF holes has been accomplished through the deposition of multiple SWCNTs monolayer by means of the Langmuir–Blodgett method.

The experimental results reviewed here demonstrate the success of the SWCNTs infiltration within the HOF holes. Furthermore, experimental measurements performed in a test chamber reveal that MOFs–SWCNTs sensing probes can be exploited to realize novel optochemical sensors for volatile organic ...
