Abstract
Chemical sensors of solvents’ vapors based on different light guides (integrated- and fiber-optics) were designed and tested.The vapor sensitive substances were introduced into nano-scale porous outer layers of the light guide substrate/core. A substrate/core material used was phase separated silicate glass or polyester polymer.
