Abstract:

GEO-CENTERS, INC. PROPOSES A PHASE I PROGRAM TO DESIGN AND EVALUATE OPTRODES TO MONITOR TRACE CONTAMINANT VAPORS PRESENT IN THE NASA'S BIOMASS PRODUCTION CHAMBER. THE TARGET SPECIES WILL BE EITHER ETHYLENE OR CARBON MONOXIDE. THE INNOVATIVE APPROACH UTILIZES TWO TYPES OF POROUS FIBER WAVEGUIDES, COMBINED WITH SELECTIVE CHEMISTRY. THESE NOVEL OPTRODES OFFER HIGH SENSITIVITY, DESIGN FLEXIBILITY AND THE INHERENT FIBER OPTIC ADVANTAGES OF EMI/EMP IMMUNITY, SMALL SIZE, RUGGEDNESS AND FREEDOM FROM EXPLOSION HAZARD. SUBSEQUENT TO LABORATORY EVALUATION, A SENSOR DESIGN WILL BE RECOMMENDED FOR PHASE II DEVELOPMENT AND FIELD TESTING AT THE KENNEDY SPACE CENTER.
